Springfield, MO—The Springfield Cardinals swept a doubleheader from the Arkansas Travelers winning by final scores of 6-4 and 4-3 on Saturday night. The first contest was a back and forth affair with both teams holding multiple leads. In the second game, all the scoring was in the first two innings but again there were multiple lead changes until the last five innings when neither side scored. Logan Warmoth reached base five times over the two games to lead the offense.
