Oskaloosa High’s baseball team moved into first place in the LIttle Hawkeye Conference Monday night (6/24) by sweeping a doubleheader from Newton. The Indians took the first game 11-1 as Rian Yates went two for three with four runs batted in. Tyler Miller was the winning pitcher. In the nightcap, Rian Yates and Cole Kraber both homered and Kraber pitched a three-hitter with five strikeouts as Oskaloosa defeated the Cardinals 5-1. Oskaloosa improves to 11-4 in the Little Hawkeye Conference….and combined with Dallas Center-Grimes splitting a Monday doubleheader with Grinnell…that moves the Indians into first place in the Conference, one half game ahead of Dallas Center-Grimes. Tuesday night (6/25), the Indians play a non-conference game at EBF with the first pitch at 7:30.
