Phillips followed Chester with a single and later scored on an Aguillard single. The Cards managed to score once in the third inning. Consecutive singles by Nair and Bewely put runners in scoring position with Nair scoring on a Skiatook error. Skiatook scored their final run of the game on a double and a single. The Cardinals scored three times in the fifth and final inning when Bewely doubled and Walker singled to set the stage for Chester's third run batted in.

Bewely's RBI Single Lifts Cards Over Putnam City

Jonathan Bewely lined a single to right field that scored Shawn Curtis which allowed the Cardinals to post a dramatic 8 to 7 victory over Class 6A Putnam City Patriots. The Cards had to score two runs in their half of the last inning to secure the win. Matt Sowards led off the inning with a single and went to third when Shawn Curtis doubled. Sowards later scored the tying run when a pitched ball got past the Patriot catcher and stuck in the backstop padding. It was a hard fought game that saw the lead change three times before Bewely's game winning single. Putnam City jumped to the lead in the first when they scored three times. The Cardinals countered in their half of the inning when they also scored three. Tyler Nair started the rally when he singled and advanced to second on Josh Walker's single. David Chester was safe on an error that loaded the bases. Brad Aguillard lifted a sacrifice fly to left that plated Nair. Ryan Coe, Alex Belitz and Sowards drew consecutive walks with the Belitz and Sowards walks plating runs. The Patriots re-took the lead in the second when they scored a single run. The Cards took the lead for the first in the second. Bewely doubled and later scored when Josh Walker lined a home run over the right center field fence. Coe followed with a single but was unable to score. Putnam City once again took the lead in the next inning when they scored twice and the Cards did not score in their half of the inning. In the fourth inning the Patriots first batter led off with a double that caused the Cardinals to replace starting pitcher, Curtis. Belitz became the Cardinal Pitcher and over the next three innings would only allow the runner he inherited to score. Walker relieved Belitz in the seventh and pitched a scoreless seventh.

Curtis, Belitz (4), Walker (7) and Coe; W: Walker (3-0). HR: Walker (6).

McGuinness Festival Tragically Shortened

The Collinsville Cardinals traveled to Oklahoma City Friday, March 17th and were scheduled to play three games in the Bishop McGuinness Festival, but the festival was cancelled when Oklahoma City Bishop McGuinness head coach Joe Cook suffered a fatal heart attack while coaching his team against Mount St. Mary. Mr. Cook was standing in the third base coaching box and slumped over and fell to the ground. Paramedics worked on Cook for about 45 minutes and he was taken to Integris Baptist Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to Oklahoma City newspaper, The Oklahoman. Mr. Cook was a well respected coach and personal friend of Collinsville coach, Tony Reeder. Cook led the Irish to a Class 4A state championship in 2002 and state runner-up in 1984 and 2001. He had also been named the Oklahoman's All-City Coach of the Year in 1981, 1984 and 2002. The Cardinal Baseball family extends its sympathy and prayers to the Cook family and Bishop McGuinness School.
