No. 4 Eagles bounce back for split

The Kirkwood Eagles made it look easy for much of the season, winning 25 of 29 games and averaging 10 runs every time they took the field. They looked nearly invincible.

Then came a 13-2 loss, followed by a 16-0 blowout, followed by a 9-2 setback and suddenly the Eagles were struggling a little bit this week on their own diamond.

Thankfully for Kirkwood, the mini-slump has ended.

The fourth-ranked Eagles bounced back and stomped NIACC, 12-2, in five innings in the second game of their conference doubleheader Thursday in relatively balmy weather that reached the high 60's.

NIACC dumped the Eagles in the first game Thursday, 9-2, but Kirkwood righted the ship in Game 2.

No. 8 Heartland belts No.4 Kirkwood

The Kirkwood baseball team played a conference doubleheader on Tuesday and will have another ICCAC twinbill on Thursday, so you'll have to excuse the Eagles for not being in top form on Wednesday.

The fourth-ranked Eagles were demolished by eighth-ranked Heartland, 13-2 and 16-0, in a non-conference doubleheader at Kirkwood.

Both games were stopped by the college mercy rule. Kirkwood got only one hit in the second game.

Kirkwood fell to 25-6 for the season. Heartland raised its mark to 26-5 with the sweep and in all likelihood will pass the Eagles in the NJCAA Division II rankings next week.

Ketelsen shines as No. 4 Eagles sweep

Adam Ketelsen absolutely loves pitching for the Kirkwood Eagles, who feature one of the most potent baseball teams in America.

And the Eagles love having Ketelsen on the mound as he continues to mow down batters this season.

Ketelsen and the fourth-ranked Eagles were a formidable combination again Tuesday as they swept Iowa Lakes, 11-1 and 13-3, in their ICCAC conference doubleheader at Kirkwood.

Both mismatches lasted only five innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.

Kirkwood raised its sparkling records to 25-4 overall and 9-1 in the ICCAC, good for a two-game lead in the conference.

Ketelsen, a 6-foot-3 lefty from Mount Vernon, struck out 10 batters in five innings in the 11-1 victory in the opener, putting him a 5-0 record and 2.16 ERA. He's fanned 47 batters in 29.1 innings, a ratio of 1.6 strikeouts per frame.

Ketelsen loves pitching for a club that's averaging 10.1 runs per game, having scored 292 times in 29 contests.
