Giltner leads Cardinal past West Burlington

ELDON — The Cardinal baseball team did just enough to knock off West Burlington Friday, as it used a four-run sixth inning to notch an 8-7 win over the Falcons in a Southeast Iowa Superconference south game.

Adam Giltner, in the first varsity game of his career, capped off the Comets’ big sixth inning with a huge two-run single with two outs and the bases loaded. It wasn’t the only time Giltner had produced for Cardinal offensively in the game. In the bottom of the fifth, he drove in Chase Courtney with a base hit.

Conner McElderry, who was a perfect 3-3 at the plate, also gave the Cardinal’s offense a big boost when he blasted a three-run homer — his fourth of the season — in the bottom of the third. In addition, Dakota Showman went 3-4 and Conner Streeby drove in two runs.

McElderry threw the first five innings of the game before he was relieved by Showman, who worked the final two innings and picked up the victory.

THORNBURG – The Tri-County baseball team let an early three-point lead slip away in its 11-5 loss to North Mahaska Friday in South Iowa Cedar Conference action.

The Trojans used a five-run third inning to take a 5-2 lead on the Warhawks. The big inning was spurred by a three-run double by Jacob Weber and an RBI double by Zach Anderson. The Warhawks, however, reclaimed the lead with four runs in the fourth inning before tacking on three more in the sixth and adding two more in the seventh on their way to a victory.
