The Eagles have done plenty of scrapping with their rivals from Black Hawk College of Moline recently and have lost a few feathers in the process.
On April 19 Damin Smith tossed seven scoreless innings, giving up only two hits in the 6-2 victory. Catcher Rodrigo Almeraz drove in three runs, increasing his team-high 20 RBI. In the second game of the double header, Black Hawk turned the tables and destroyed IV 10-0. The Eagles committed three errors and could only muster two hits.
A rain out on April 21 meant the Eagles would play four games in a row against the Braves. The next day IV lost 12-2 at home before falling 9-4 a few hours later. Logan Bima drove in his 14th RBI.
As a team, the Eagles are hitting .239 with a .290 slugging percentage. Almeraz boasts the team’s highest average at .312, while Smith has a 2-1 record and 18 strikeouts.
As of press time, the Eagles were in second place in the Arrowhead Conference and held a 9-7 conference record. Last year, the team finished in fourth in the conference.
