Two area baseball teams meet on the diamond in Pella tonight in the Class 2A District Semifinals, as Pella Christian takes on PCM in a rematch of the regular season finale for both squads.  

The Eagles’ won that match-up last Thursday 8-6 in Prairie City, and are hoping to repeat that success on their home field.  Pella Christian is 12-22 overall and coming off of an 8-0 win over Clarke in the tournament opener on Saturday, while the Mustangs are 19-10 and hoping their first round bye gave them time to recharge and make tonight the start of a strong postseason run.  

Tonight’s Class 2A District Baseball game will be broadcast live on 92.1 fm KRLS, with Cory Houser and Eric Gotschall providing the call.  First pitch between Pella Christian and PCM is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. and will be preceded on the diamond by another Semifinal match-up between Interstate-35 and Des Moines Christian.
