PC Baseball Shut Down in Capital City

Des Moines Christian’s firepower was too much for the Pella Christian baseball team to keep pace with Monday night in Des Moines, as the Eagles were defeated 10-0 in five innings.

The Lions roughed up starting pitcher Dillon Branderhorst in the bottom of the third frame, scoring seven runs on six hits and grabbing a stranglehold on the game. Branderhorst would finish with no walks and two strikeouts in 2 ⅓ innings of work.

At the plate, no Pella Christian batter had multiple hits; as Jordan Rossler, Dan Hessing, Will VandeVoort and Josh VanGorp accounted for the Eagles’ four hits on the evening. The loss drops the Pella Christian baseball team to 9-22 overall, entering tonight’s regular season finale against Newton.
