Oskaloosa’s baseball team scored early and often Wednesday night (6/12) against Pella. The Indians scored five runs in each of the first two innings en route to a 13-1 victory in five innings. Rian Yates and Noah Van Veldhuizen both hit two-run homers in the first inning for the Indians. Yates and Van Veldhuizedn both had three rbi on the night, while Cole Kraber went four for four and Tyler Miller had three hits and was the winning pitcher. Rian Yates says the Indians took a different approach at the plate Wednesday.
“I thought the approach was really good tonight. It was a lot better than it has been this year. We weren’t settling for pitchers’ pitches early in the count, we were getting our pitches. And when we got to two strikes, we were still fighting off some tough pitches and just waiting to get ours and then driving it.”
The Indians baseball team is now 7-4 overall and 4-3 in the Little Hawkeye Conference. The Indians host conference leaders Indianola in a doubleheader Friday night (6/14). We’ll have both games on KBOE-FM and the No Coast Network.
