Dead Even! EBF, No. 6 (3A) Chariton all tied with two games left in SCC race


“I didn’t even know I had that many strikeouts,” Bambrook said. “You just have to be ready to go. You can’t be ready to just go two or three innings. You have to be ready to go the distance. You have to find whatever you’ve got left and hope it’s better than whatever they’ve got left.”

What EBF and Chariton now have left are two final SCC doubleheaders that will decide the conference title. The Rockets (22-10, 14-4) finished their side of the conference race Wednesday against a Centerville squad that still had a chance to share the conference crown with both teams as the Big Reds (16-13, 10-6) needed to sweep EBF, sweep Clarke Monday, and have No. 6 (3A) Chariton (28-4, 14-4) lose twice at Albia next Tuesday.

“These are the kind of situations we’re going to face a lot of the next couple of weeks, even as we head into the postseason,” Ashman said. “It’s been a heck of conference race. You never know who’s going to get who on any given night.”
