Pella Christian baseball and softball seemed to have the offense working for them last night, as they each picked up a win against Little Hawkeye Conference foe, Grinnell. The Eagles’ softball team had a walk-off groundout for the win in their contest, 7 – 6. Tessa Howerzyl doubled home a run and Jaynee VandeWeerdhof and Brooke Mitrisin each had a hit as well. Taylor Hartson earned a rare win plus a save on the mound. A slumping Tigers’ baseball squad was no match for the Eagles, and Pella Christian handily won their game 16 – 6. Caleb Morgan and Dillon Branderhorst had two hits apiece, and they each drove in four runs. Spencer Fynaardt and Jason Holwerda also had a pair of hits for Eagles’ baseball, who improves to 7 – 8 overall with a record of 2 – 5 in the league. Pella Christian softball also improves to a record of 7 – 9 – 1 and is 2 – 5 in within the conference. Eagles’ softball will host a varsity doubleheader against Newton tonight, and the baseball team will play a JV/Varsity game at Knoxville to make-up for last Friday’s rainout. You can hear tonight’s baseball contest live on 92.1 KRLS and streamed live at with Cory Houser and Marcus Johnson on the call. Pregame coverage starts at around 7:15 p.m. with first pitch at 7:30.
