PDT Sports Report


West picked up a key split Saturday at Cincinnati Madeira.


The Senators’ win came in the opener with a 12-9 decision. Despite giving up two home runs to Arkansas signee Andrew Benintendi, one of which was a grand slam, West used a 10-run fifth for the difference. With the bases loaded, Travis Smith recorded a strikeout to end the game and notch his first save of the campaign.


Wesley Book and Brady Knittel were each 3-for-5 and combined for nine runs batted in and five runs scored. Trevar Welch struck out five and walked three in five innings for his second win of the season.


In the second game, the Mustangs fell behind 7-2 entering the bottom of the third but rallied to win a 16-8 game for the split. Book was 4-for-5 with two RBIs and a pair of runs scored.


The Senators will travel Monday to Wheelersburg.
