Central’s baseball team will try to down the Spartans of Dubuque on the diamond in the first Iowa Conference series of the season for both teams this afternoon. Central dropped two-of-three to Grinnell to open up the season, but really heated up when they flew down to Tucson, Arizona and won seven of eight contests to improve to 8 – 3. Dubuque is 4 – 7 coming into play today, but battled some tough teams in their spring break trip to Fort Myers, Florida. Coach Adam Stevens echoes the comments from Dutch men’s basketball coach, Craig Douma: there is a lot of parity throughout the league this season. You can hear today’s doubleheader live on 92.1 KRLS and streamed live at KNIAKRLS.com with Cory Houser on the play-by-play. Pregame coverage starts at around 12:50 p.m. with first pitch of game number one at 1:00 p.m.
