Its hard to say what brought the Post 15 Indians to dropping nearly 40 runs in two games on Garnett Thursday night.
It couldve been the Muddogs pitching but the two teams had played two weeks prior and Iola won by only 5-0 and 4-2. Maybe it was errors. Teams that cant field often run into 15- and 20-point quagmires but Garnett played pretty cleanly. Maybe it was Iolas focus that night or, as head coach Levi Ashmore joked, maybe it was the unseasonably cool and rainy weather last night that caused the Indians 21-2 and 18-0 outbursts.
For the first day of summer it kind of had me fooled, Ashmore said. You wouldve guessed it was a late September night. Its kind of weird but the kids came out to play and it was almost like the weather did something to us, too, maybe thats why we played so good.
Reasoning aside, the Indians, 12-2 and winners of 10 straight, walked off the field knowing they played their best baseball of the season.
