The newly ranked No. 18 Labette Cardinals swept the Coffeyville Red Ravens 8-0, 9-0 in its final series of a long homestand on Monday. Both games ended in the sixth inning with the run-rule.

“We just did our job offensively,” Labette head coach Ryan Phillips said. “We used the short game well. We hit the ball hard. We would’ve had more extra-base hits if the wind wasn’t blowing in here at 30 miles per hour.” 

Jadeyn Wyrick and Katelyn Kotlarz both delivered gems in the circle, going the distance for the shutout. Wyrick allowed six hits while Kotlarz allowed just one.

“Jadeyn threw really well again,” Phillips said. “She had a great pitching performance. Katelyn looked great at times. She worked behind early but we’re still getting her back into a groove. She’s one of those kids that overanalyzes to fix everything.” 

Offensively, the Cardinals stitched together 21 hits while pushing across plenty of runs with small ball.

“We’re going to have off days in our lineup,” Phillips said. “Somebody always has to step up. Today, our offense was pretty hard to stop. That’s a result of seeing some of the best teams in the conference so far and seeing tough teams in non-conference play.” 

Grey Holland ended Game 2 with a three-run home run as part of a four-hit day.

Coffeyville dipped to 2-10 overall and 1-5 in Kansas Jayhawk Conference play with the two losses.

Labette improved to 14-8 overall and 5-1 in the KJCCC. The Cardinals are currently tied with Johnson County atop its division in the KJCCC nearly a quarter of the way through the conference slate.

“We’ve got to just come out and play,” Phillips said. “Cloud is a gritty team. We always have issues playing at their place. It’s a long travel day and it puts us out of our routine. So we’ve got to play well.” 

For the third time this season, Labette hits the road on Thursday as it travels to Concordia to face Cloud County.

“We’ve got to just come out and play,” Phillips said. “Cloud is a gritty team. We always have issues playing at their place. It’s a long travel day and it puts us out of our routine. So we’ve got to play well.”
