Four walks and three errors led to a six-run fourth inning as Gilbert came from behind to beat the Pella baseball team 10-8 last night in non-conference action.

All told, the Little Dutch committed five errors and issued five walks on the evening as the Tigers came from four runs down for the victory.

Avery Van Zee was three-for-four offensively for Pella with three runs scored and an RBI, while Jaden Rolffs was two-for-four with two runs and three runs driven in.

The Little Dutch are now 15-14 on the season. Both the Little Dutch and Lady Dutch host Grinnell tonight for varsity doubleheaders.

The baseball action will start at 5:30, while softball starts at 6:00. You can hear game two from the Pella High softball diamond on AM 1320 and FM 95.3 KNIA with Andrew Schneider on the play-by-play, with first pitch at approximately 7:30.
