The weather may be cold but the Morningside baseball team looks to continue a hot streak on Tuesday when the Mustangs host the University of Sioux Falls in non-conference action. Coach Jim Scholten’s team has won eight of its last nine games and currently stands 24-14.
Scholten says they want to take the momentum into this week and have another good week, but he quotes former major league manager Earl Weaver in saying "momentum is only as good as your next day’s starting pitcher." Scholten says despite bad weather as of late the Mustangs have not had many games canceled and when it is required they can move inside for practice.
He says they have two indoor cages which give them some options. Scholten says they’ve had good luck with the weather on game days being good enough to keep the games from being canceled.
