Following two wins and one loss in conference play last week the English Valleys baseball team sat in a two-way tie for fourth place in the SICL with Tri-County at 9-8.

The Bears started their week in a matchup with second-place North Mahaska. Despite only getting four hits and drawing two walks, the Bears were able to manufacture four runs off North Mahaska’s A.J. Hibler, which proved to be more than enough for EV pitcher Brennen Grimm. Grimm threw a complete game three-hitter, struck out nine and walked two; his only run allowed came on a solo homerun by Taylor Legvold in the third that put NM ahead 1-0.
