The Knoxville Baseball Squad finally found a way to come from behind last night and make it stick. The Panthers rallied from a 4-1 deficit to beat Oskaloosa last night 7-5. Freshman Jared McClung had a big night at the plate going 2/3 and four R-B-I. Coach Joel Johnson says the last couple of weeks the younger players are starting to realize what it takes to have success at the varsity level. Justin Katich got the win going the distance in giving up five runs on nine hits, two walks and eight strikeouts. Knoxville is now 5-16 on the season and 3-8 in the conference. Knoxville is off until Monday when the Panthers start a week when they play eight games in a span of five days starting on the road at Newton.
