Missions Sweep Cards Series

The San Antonio Missions swept Springfield in their three game series, including a double header win Monday.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Springfield Cardinals wrapped up their weeklong homestand with a double header Monday at Hammons Field.

The double dip is needed because Saturday night's game with San Antonio was rained out.

And this is San Antonio's last regular season game in Springfield this year.

Wind blowing out at Hammons, and the batters took advantage.

It's 1-0 Missions in the first when Rymer Liriano takes this deep to center, way over the fence and gone a two run shot and it's 3-nothing San Antonio.

Springfield answers in the bottom half, Aledmys Diaz hammers this shot to left, over the outfield and off the bullpen fence, that puts runners at second and third.

And Patrick Wisdom makes them pay, this blast goes over the bullpen, a three run shot and we're tied at three.

Springfield moves in front in the bottom of the second, Mike O'Neill slaps this single to left, Starlin Rodriguez motors around third, play at the plate and he's safe, 4-3 Cardinals.

Then Cody Stanley singles to right, O'Neill scores it's 5-3.

But San Antonio wins game one 7-6 in ten, and the Missions take the nightcap 6-3.
