The Knoxville Baseball Squad will try to keep momentum from a dizzying game two against Oskaloosa on Wednesday when the Panthers were able to hang on to an 11-7 win after the lead traded back-and-fourth three times. Coach Joel Johnson said he saw many of the guys show the emotion that he wants them to have in that second game…and hopes that continues tonight with a streaking Cardinals squad coming in. Newton lost its first five games of the season before winning five of its last six to post a 5-6 record. Knoxville meanwhile has a 3-7 record with a 2-2 mark in the Little Hawkeye Conference.
