UNI baseball coach Rick Heller feels his team is playing its best baseball of the season right now. The problem is it won’t help the Panthers get into the Missouri Valley Conference tournament. UNI opens the final weekend of the season with the first of a three game series at home against Creighton.
Heller says they’re playing for pride and trying to get a winning record to finish out the season.
By winning two of the games this weekend the Panthers would finish the season with a winning record. They’d have 29 wins if they sweep the series and Heller says that’s a “pretty decent” year. Heller says they’ve continued to get better throughout the season after stubbing their toe early. The series will continue with single games on Friday and Saturday.
