Posting two come-from-behind wins on Monday against Simpson, the Central baseball team heads north to Waverly for a huge four-game series against first place Wartburg this afternoon. The Dutch lost three-of-four to Coe last weekend, and the Knights are tied with the Kohawks at 10 – 2 in the conference with a record overall of 21 – 5. Coach Adam Stevens says that while Wartburg does have a lot of returners this year, his team has historically played well against them in the past.
