Cyclones tally 28 hits in baseball sweep at Creston

Foss, Juhl add to home run totals as HCHS beats Hulett and Shiltz, improving to 6-0 overall

 CRESTON -- Harlan Community finally played a pair of full seven-inning baseball games Thursday night and still won both by 10 runs, sweeping a Hawkeye Ten doubleheader at Creston, 13-3 and 12-2.
 Facing the best pitching they’ve seen during the first two weeks of the season, the 2nd-ranked (3-A) Cyclones continued to string together great at-bats in gradually chipping away against Panther junior Kadon Hulett in game one, then driving up Chase Shiltz’s pitch count in game two and scoring eight seventh-inning runs to turn a tight contest into a rout.
 After winning their first four games by the mercy rule in five innings or less, HCHS needed a little more time to 10-run Creston but did so eventually in improving to 6-0 overall and 5-0 in the Hawkeye Ten Conference. The Panthers dropped to 2-4 and 1-3.
 Kyle Juhl and Brett Sears both combined for five hits during the twin bill, Dillon Sears scored six total runs and Juhl had five RBI (all in game one).
