Cardinals’ late rally falls short at home
Following an impressive win over the 2012 state champions from Dallas Center-Grimes, the Newton baseball team (9-11) returned home on Wednesday night to host another perennial Iowa powerhouse — South Tama (12-5).
The Cardinals found it difficult to get their offense going. They were held scoreless through the first six innings, and although senior Zach Gifford did an admirable job of keeping the Trojan hitters at bay, South Tama eventually busted out for six runs and beat the Cardinals, 6-3.
Gifford suffered the loss for Newton, but his second start of the year was one to take note of. He pitched five innings, giving up four runs on three hits and two walks.
