Newton holds on to win despite Little Dutch rally
PELLA — Deep in the heart of Dutch Country, the Newton baseball team found itself locked in a tight battle with the Little Dutch of Pella on Monday night.
Runs were at a premium for both teams, and Newton’s two two-run outbursts combined with Michael Barr’s effort on the hill were enough to subdue the Little Dutch bats as the Cardinals came away with a 4-3 victory.
Newton got the scoring started in the top of the third inning. Sophomore Tyler Wood hit a ground-ball single through the right side of the infield to lead things off. Chandler Sturtz followed that up with a single, going to the opposite field. Senior Taylor Field stepped to the plate and hit a deep fly ball to advance both of the Cardinal runners.
