Sheldon put a run on the board in the sixth when Chad Den Hartog dropped an rbi single into right that scored Trevor Johnson. Joe Kuiper keyed the offense with a 3-for-3 night.

In a battle of left handers Collin Pennings earned the win. He struck out 5 and did not walk a batter. Cody Hatting gave up 8 hits, walked 1 and struck out 6 giving up 3 earned runs.

On the softball diamond the Dutch set the tone in the second inning as Brook Jacobsma and Lauren McDonald both walked and came in to score when Rachel Reints lifted a home run over the fence in straight away left field.

Both the Orab and Dutch baseball teams have Tuesday off.

Sports Schedule For 6/26/12

Some creative scheduling and cooperation between activities directors has resulted in Sheldon playing Spirit Lake in Cherokee today. Spirit Lake was to have hosted Sheldon but the game was moved to Cherokee so that Cherokee and Spirit Lake could make up a conference game prior to the Sheldon-Spirit Lake contest . The cooperation comes in as Sheldon is able to make up their non conference game with Spirit Lake on the Braves field and all three teams have one less game to make up.
