High school baseball’s playoffs begin tonight, and Pella Christian will hit the diamond in Albia for a Class 2A first rounder against Colfax-Mingo. These two teams met up way back on June 4, with the Eagles winning 13 – 5. Coach Nate Johnson says that the key to tonight’s game will be to limit those middle-of-the-lineup guys for Colfax-Mingo to very few, if any, base hits. The Tiger-Hawks had only six hits in their one and only game against the Eagles this year, and they all came from their 3-4 hitters: seniors Jake Alexander and Chad McLain. You can hear tonight’s first round contest with the Eagles and Tiger-Hawks exclusively streamed live at KNIAKRLS.com with Justin Webster calling the action. Pregame starts at 4:45 p.m. with first pitch scheduled for 5:00.
