Iola trades wins with Heritage Christian

A dominant pitching performance from Korbin Cloud in game one sealed the deal and a win for Iola. When Mac Leonard took the ball in game two, the Mustangs couldn't do much at the plate to back him up in Iola's only second loss of the season.

What was a consistent scoring effort in a game one victory turned into a challenge at the plate in game two for the Iola High baseball team at home against Heritage Christian Tuesday. 

The Mustangs split with the Chargers by winning game one, 5-0. Korbin Cloud was the man of the hour, driving the first two runs of the game before throwing a complete game shutout. Iola struggled to find runs in the 2-1 loss in game two.

Game one 

Cloud smacked a two-run home run to put Iola ahead early, 2-0. Landon Weide reached base to lead off the bottom of the first accounting for the second run on Cloud’s shot.
