The Barton Community College baseball team rallied for four runs in the ninth inning to earn a doubleheader sweep on Monday at Lawson-Biggs Field over Colby.
The Cougars won Game 1, 3-2, then rallied to capture Game 2, 13-12.
On Sunday the teams split their doubleheader, as Colby took the first, 9-7, with the Cougars taking the nightcap, 9-5.
With the 3-1 series win, Barton improves to 4-4 in Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference play and 10-8-1 overall, while dropping Colby to 2-4 and 8-9.
Caleb Cherryholmes led off the Barton ninth in the second game with a walk as the Cougars needed a three-run inning to force extra innings.
Bryce Minor pinch hit for Brian Regan and fought off a 2-2 count, singling to left field putting the Cougars in great position to rally.
Following an Evan McDonald walk, the Trojans got Kyle Cromwell to fly out to short-right field to damper the spirits just slightly.
With the Barton bench in full rally mode, Jacob Richardson drew the Cougars to within two, reaching on a fielder’s choice and pushing across Cherryholmes.
Stealing second base, Richardson put himself in scoring position setting the stage for Trevor Turner to deliver his fourth hit of the game, a full-count two-run single to center scoring Minor and Richardson to tie it at 12.
The Cougars will return to Lawson-Biggs Field on Wednesday as Barton hosts the junior varsity squad from Bethany College in a 5 p.m. nine-inning contest.
