Mahaska County was the site for a pair of wacky games involving Pella and Oskaloosa baseball last night. The Little Dutch won game one, 11 – 1 in just five innings. Grant Judkins earned the win on the mound, allowing just two hits. Jason Morgan also had a home run for the Dutch. Game two went ten innings, but Pella still prevailed, 5 – 4. The Dutch got up 3 – 0 in the first, but six walks from pitcher Adam Carey allowed the Indians to get in front 4 – 3. Judkins smacked a home run in the sixth to knot it up, and the score would remain that way until the tenth, when a two-out run-scoring error allowed the Dutch to take the lead and hold on for the win. Austin Titman came in relief of Carey and threw seven-and-two-thirds of shutout ball, allowing three hits, walking three and struck out nine. Coach Jesse Jablonski says Titman almost won the starting spot over Carey but he has settled into the relief role nicely. The Lady Dutch fell 8 – 5 and 5 – 0 to the Indians. Pella’s boys improve to 12 – 7 while the girls drop to 2 – 16. Pella baseball plays in the Williamsburg tournament later today.
