The Knoxville Baseball Squad completed the weekend excursion Sunday at Duane Banks Field in Iowa City by drubbing Fort Madison in a double header 14-3 in game one and 18-0 in game two. In game one the Panthers broke open a tight game in the second inning scoring five runs, then posted seven runs in the fourth to run rule the Bloodhounds in the fifth. Ben Wallace pitched just an inning and a third but got the win. Wallace also helped himself by going 2/3 with four R-B-I. In the second game, after a scoreless first, the Panthers rung up seven runs in the second, five in the third and six in the fourth to send everyone home early. Ben Olson went 2/4 with three R-B-I. Tanner Mason allowed just one hit in four innings of work and four strikeouts. Knoxville is now 27-11 on the season winners of its last seven games. The Panthers travel to Newton tonight.
