The Pella Lady Dutch were able to beat Newton before severe weather came to town, winning game one of a scheduled doubleheader 3-2.

Maddie Parks struck out 10 in 6 ⅓ innings of work and scored twice at the top of the order. They improve to 6-7 and host Eddyville-Blakesburg for a single game this evening.

Thunderstorms put a damper on the doubleheader for the Pella baseball team, who will make up the twinbill with Newton on Saturday, June 23rd at 2 p.m. However, Pella did earn a win through a non-traditional means, after Indianola violated the pitch count rule in Game 2 on June 1st. Pella improves to 4-4 after the change and travels to Saydel tonight.
