Coach John Hupp’s Greene County Rams host Saydel (Des Moines) tonight at Allensworth Field in Jefferson in Heart of Iowa Activities Conference baseball. The Rams are coming off a 5-3 victory on Friday at home over Nevada, which evened their conference record at 2-2. Overall, Greene County is 4-7 heading into the week. They broke a six-game losing streak with a win in the second game of a doubleheader on Wednesday at Story City vs. Roland-Story, and have won two of the last three games. Improved hitting and run scoring is one of the reasons for the improved record, as the Rams have scored 5, 11, 8, and 5 runs in their last four games after totaling just five runs in their previous four.
The Eagles are normally a baseball power, but this season Saydel is off to an 0-7 start with a team earned run average of 7.31 and a team batting average of .213.
