The Garden City Community College baseball team swept the first doubleheader of its conference-opening series with Hutchinson on Friday at Williams Stadium.

The Broncbusters took an 8-6 decision in the opener, and followed with a 10-6 win in the second game.

A seven-run third inning powered the Busters in the 10-6 win. Mason Fischer went 2-for-4 with three RBI, and Brooks Trujillo pitched five innings for the win, allowing five earned runs on seven hits and three walks.

Garden City trailed 6-0 before scoring eight unanswered runs in the series-opening 8-6 win.

Alex Buechler scored the winning run on a wild pitch by Garrett Woods in the sixth, with Nolan Barrientos scoring on a wild pitch, as well, for GCCC's eighth run.

Colton Kibler walked the bases loaded in the seventh with two outs, but got Jacob Ek to line out to short for the save. Starter Bradley Spires pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing six runs, four earned, on three hits, three walks and four hit batters, to go with seven strikeouts. Josh Thomas pitched a scoreless sixth for the win.

Garden City is 6-9 and 2-0 in conference, while Hutchinson dropped to 5-5 and 2-4 in KJCCC play.

Games 3 and 4 were scheduled to be played at 1 and 3 p.m. today at Williams Stadium.
