The Class 2-1A defending state baseball champion Ell-Saline Cardinals swept Smoky Valley 13-2 and 10-9 on Tuesday to open the season 2-0.

Cody Walters struck out 10 batters in the first game to pick up the win. Ell-Saline used an eight-run second inning to blow the game open.

In the second game, Smoky Valley led 9-7 in the bottom of the seventh inning. Nathan Fouard’s RBI single with two outs extended the inning, and then an error allowed the Cardinals to score twice for the win.
