The Salina Stockade couldn’t avoid a weekend sweep in Tucson, giving up a late rally to the Saguaros to fall 10-7 on Sunday in Arizona.
Salina had a 3-0 lead after an inning, and led 7-4 after the top of the seventh inning, but Tucson rallied for a run in the bottom of the seventh and five more in the eighth to get the win.
Tyler Zuetenbarst had three hits for Salina. Kevin Delzell took the loss in relief, giving up five runs, four earned, on four hits with one walk in an inning and a third.
The Stockade is 28-34 overall and leads Topeka by a half-game for the third and final playoff spot in the North Division of the Pecos League with four games left. The Stockade opens a four-game series at last place Santa Fe tonight, while Topeka visits Great Bend for doubleheaders tonight and Tuesday.
