Dutch Baseball Evens Up Conference Record with Sweep of Luther

Central’s baseball squad notched their second consecutive series win on Saturday, sweeping their doubleheader with Luther in Iowa Conference action. Game one went Central’s way, 4 – 0. Judson McKown went the distance, giving up only three hits in seven innings of work while striking out seven. Robbie Rushing had a two-run blast, his fourth of the season, to help lead the Dutch to victory. Game two was a bit closer in the nine-inning affair, but Central ended up on top, 6 – 5. After the Norse tied the game in the top of the eighth at five-all, Jace Ahrendsen brought home Andrew O’Toole who led off the inning with a double for the go-ahead run. Central is now 16 – 11 overall and 8 – 8 within the league, and they will next play Coe at home on Friday.
