College Baseball: Ridgewater nearly beats top-ranked Iowa Western
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — A winless Ridgewater College squad nearly knocked off the top-ranked NJCAA Division I team Friday afternoon, but Iowa Western rallied past the Division III Warriors 5-4 in the opening game of a doubleheader.
Ridgewater had a 4-3 lead after posting a pair of two-run innings in the second and third. Sophomore lefty Brady Smith then blanked Iowa Western in the third, fourth and sixth, but single runs in the fifth and seventh propelled the home team.
