In a game heard right here on KCHA last night, the Charles City Comet baseball team was in a Northeast Iowa Conference match-up with Decorah. The Comet pitching staff had a tough time cooling the Viking bats as they scored 17 runs on 17 hits and went on to beat Charles City 17-9. Colton Slinger and Dylan Salinas each had two hits for the Comets and Cole Reams had a two run home run to lead the Comet offense. The second game was postponed because of the rain and no make-up date has yet been announced. The Charles City baseball team is now 9-7 overall and 6-5 in the NEIC. They are scheduled to play again tonight in Osage.
The Rockford Warrior baseball team was at home last night against Osage in Top of Iowa Conference action. Osage scored three runs in the second inning and held on to win the game 3-1.

Osage baseball will host Charles City and Rockford will head to Clarksville tonight for non-conference games.
The Rockford Warrior softball team also hosted Osage last night in Top of Iowa Conference play.
