Central’s baseball wraps up their regular season with a huge four-game series against Wartburg starting this afternoon. There is quite a bit riding in this series for both teams; the Dutch, with their recent surge of 12 wins in their last 14 games, have put themselves in a position to perhaps jump the Knights for second place in the conference and earn a first round bye in the league tournament next week. Coach Adam Stevens hopes to use their speed to more of their advantage this weekend. The Dutch need a series win over Wartburg to earn that first round bye, they’ll start playing today at 1:00 p.m. Central’s softball team takes on Buena Vista in their round one contest in the Iowa Conference tournament. You can hear today’s game in Cedar Rapids live on with our KRLS2 stream. Trevor Castle has made the drive and has the play-by-play for you. First pitch is scheduled for noon. If the Dutch win, they’ll play again at 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. A loss knocks them into the loser’s bracket and they would play tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m.
