Cardinals deck Missions again

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.

Springfield wrapped up its three-game series with the Missions by pounding out a 9-4 win Saturday night.

After dropping its second straight to the Cardinals, San Antonio begins a three-game swing at Tulsa Sunday.

Springfield totaled 12 hits and owned a 5-0 lead after two innings.

David Washington, who belted the game-winning two-run home run in Friday’s 2-0 win, haunted Missions pitchers again, driving in four runs with a 2 for 2 showing at the plate.

Although the Cardinals held the advantage after taking the early lead, the Missions made an attempt at a comeback. Nick Torres’ RBI single triggered a two-run rally in the fourth and Taylor Lindsey clubbed a two-run home run in the seventh.

However, it wasn’t nearly enough to catch the Cardinals.
