The Northwestern College baseball team is two victories away from a trip to the NAIA World Series. The Raiders won their last three games to win a regional tournament over the weekend in Sioux City. Next up is a visit to Bellevue of Nebraska later this week for a super regional.
Northwestern coach Brian Wede says there was a lot of excitement as they played consistently well through the weekend. The pitching staff has been a strength all year and it was this past weekend. The Raiders yielded only five runs in their last three games combined.
Wede says they have two seniors and two juniors and they knew going in that would be an advantage, and they pitched well. Northwestern and Bellevue will play a best-of-three series with the winner advancing to the World Series.
