Through with playing the multitude of Class 3A schools in the Little Hawkeye Conference, the Pella Christian baseball team starts postseason play tonight against Albia at Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont High. The two schools met in late May in the second game of the season, in a contest that went just five innings in favor of the Blue Demons, 10 – 0. Albia used a seven-run fifth inning to key them to victory. Both teams stumbled in the middle of the season, but ended with a bang; the Eagles won three of their last four, including a sweep of Grinnell, while Albia won nine of their last ten. Tonight’s postseason opener for the Eagles can be exclusively streamed live online at KNIAKRLS.com with Andrew Schneider on the play-by-play. The pregame starts at 4:45 p.m. with first pitch at 5:00 p.m.
