Duncan 13, Southeast 3
Those expecting anything different from game one were left disappointed in the nightcap, as the Duncan offense stayed hot and Peters shut down the Spartans on the hill.
Junior Hunter Phillips got things going in the second, brining in Norton and Stanley with an RBI double.
Not to be outdone, Baldwin earned his second triple of the night and scored Phillips.
Senior Ryan Haley gave Duncan more insurance with the team’s second bunt single of the night, scoring Baldwin.
After Hightower got on with a walk, Kaspereit filled in as a pinch runner and scored on a passed ball after stealing second and third.
Following a three run Southeast effort in the third, Duncan reasserted itself with three runs of its own on the innings’ bottom half. Peters scored on a fly ball single to right from Hunter Phillips, Phillips scored on a Ryan double, and Byford came home on a double by senior Brian Bradburry.
With the game out of reach, Duncan closed the door on Southeast when junior John Campbell turned a game-clinching double play at the top of the fifth.
“In both games, we had steady pitching,” Hightower said. “It’s so important for us to be consistent every inning, and we did a good job at that.”
Duncan returns to action at 4 p.m. Friday at home against Eisenhowe.
