Greene County High School baseball is on a hot streak at the right time of the season. Long in the past is an eight game losing streak that saw the Rams go without two of their top three starting pitchers for a two-week stretch. Coach Mark Sawhill reports good health for everyone and the Rams have responded by winning five of their last six games.
The upcoming week has four games on the schedule, all on the road. Monday has Greene County in Alleman to face Class 2A number one ranked North Polk, and Tuesday sees the Rams at non-conference opponent Ogden. It’s a non-conference trip to Osceola on Wednesday to face Clarke Community, and staying on the road, the Rams meet South Central Calhoun in Lytton on Thursday.
Greene County is 8-12 overall and 7-8 in Heart of Iowa Activities Conference play.
Activities Director Dean Lansman told Raccoon Valley Radio he is optimistic the Rams will get one of two recently rained out home games rescheduled. Greene County was washed out vs. South Hamilton on June 27 and Nevada on June 30. Coach Lansman said SH does not want to reschedule, but Nevada does. The Rams and Cubs are working to find a make-up date prior to the start of Class 3A District tournament play on Friday, July 18. The list of options appears to be narrowed to either July 15 or 16.
