Second-ranked Sabers blank Moravia


The Savages managed just one hit off Winn, who struck out nine batters while earning his fifth win, but walked seven batters and allowed an unearned run to score in the seventh before Rambo struck out the final batter to keep Sigourney from rallying for the win. Kolby Allsup had the big hit in the only scoring rally for the Panthers in the second, delivering a two-run double in the three-run frame.

Sigourney finishes the season with a record of 8-17. Pekin, meanwhile, will look to avenge a regular-season 5-0 loss to Cardinal as the 13-11 Panthers meet the 16-11 Comets in the district semifinals in Keota on Thursday night at 7.
