The Maquoketa Cardinals baseball team swept a double header Thursday night from the Benton Community Bobcats.

The Cardinals held off the Bobcats’ rally in the first game, as the Cardinals led 9-2 going into the top of the seventh. But the Bobcats scored four times, cutting the lead and final score to 9-6.

In game two, Payton Mangler took the mound and gave up one run in the first two innings. 

The Cardinals’ bats came alive in the bottom of the fourth with the team trailing 3-1. Bryce Hansen drew a walk, then stole second base. Kaiden Scott reached on an error by the shortstop, then Liam Aunan drew a walk to load the bases for Hunter Manning. 

Manning hit a double to left center field, bringing in two runs. Aunan and Manning scored on passed balls to give the Cardinals the lead 5-3.

The Bobcats tied the game in the top of the seventh with a base on balls, a throwing error, and a double by the Bobcats’ clean-up hitter. 

Kane Kopp relieved Mangler after the first two batters reached base in the seventh. Kopp struck out the third batter in the inning before giving up the double to tie the score 5-5. He walked the next batter before striking out the next two hitters he faced, setting up the Cardinals walk-off win. 

In the bottom of the seventh, Kopp led off with a triple to center. The Bobcats intentionally walked Kannon Coakley, who went on to steal. Then Jack Dostal set off a celebration by lining a single to center for the walk-off win, scoring Kopp.
