The Wartburg baseball team has surged to the top of the Iowa Conference race. The Knights have won nine straight games after sweeping a three game series from the University of Dubuque and at 11-4, own a half game lead over second place Buena Vista.
Wartburg coach Joel Holst says they started 2-4 and were playing poor defense early, and now are excited to be back on top of the race. He says his team has been playing well in all phases. Holst says they traditionally put win streaks together and are hoping for another down the stretch run.
The Knights play the next five games on the road beginning with Tuesday’s doubleheader at Coe. Holst calls it "tour week" and says they need to play good baseball on the road.
