Pella High baseball ended up squeezing out a one-run victory over Newton last night, 6 – 5. Marcus Wittmer had two hits and two RBI’s in the contest and Jason Morgan also had a pair of knocks. Tanner Wood was the winning pitcher, throwing five innings before Wittmer came in and earned the save by pitching two innings of shutout ball. The Lady Dutch fell 7 – 4 to the Cardinals. Elyse Sadler took the loss, giving up seven hits and three walks. Kinzi Van Wyk and Lydia Dingeman each had two hits for the Lady Dutch. Pella’s boys improve to 10 – 7 while the girls fall to 2 – 14. Pella will head to Mahaska County to take on Oskaloosa tomorrow night.
