It was the Kaden Guida show Friday afternoon as St. Peter’s baseball team swept a doubleheader at Worthington, 20-2 and 2-0.


Guida was the starting pitcher in the first game, throwing the first five innings and allowing just one hit while walking two and striking out six. He also smashed a pair of home runs and a single, finishing with five RBIs.


St. Peter made the opener considerably more lopsided by scoring 13 runs in the top of the sixth. Worthington got its lone runs in the bottom of the sixth when Manny Saravia was hit by a pitch and later scored on a double steal, and Tucker Brandner walked and scored on a Mathias Noble triple. A Noble single in the fourth was the only other Trojan hit.


In game two, Guida threw the first four innings and allowed no hits and no walks – one WHS hitter reached on an error -- while striking out five. The Trojans’ lone hit came with just one remaining, as Max Ostrem singled off the glove of a diving St. Peter left fielder.
