Two Close Games Go Central’s Way Over Dubuque

Central’s baseball team held Dubuque to three runs in each game of their doubleheader, but had to come from behind to win both on Saturday, 5 – 3 and 4 – 3. The Dutch and Spartans were tied at two heading into the sixth, when Central exploded for three runs on a trio of base hits and a Dubuque error. Dirk Lindaman pitched all seven innings to earn the win for the Dutch to improve to 3 – 1. In the nine-inning game, Central found themselves again in a hole in the late innings, down 3 – 2 in the seventh, more Dutch small ball scored both the tying and go-ahead runs in the seventh and eighth, respectively. Central has now won their last five and are 12 – 5 overall with a mark of 4 – 2 in the Iowa Conference. The Dutch has a few days of rest before their next doubleheader on Tuesday in Indianola versus Simpson.
