The Tribe is red hot. Winning 6 straight games,

The Tribe took down Eastbrook last night 17-3 after starting off very slow and being down three to nothing in the first two innings. Owen Felver with the win for Mississinewa with 6 K’s 9 walks, and only allowing 1 hit. Carson Campbell was 2 for 4 with an RBI. Landen Swanner was 1 for 4 with 3 RBIs. With a young team the Indians have to find ways to win and it comes down to situational baseball, The team has done just that, if it’s on the basses or at the plate pounding the ball into the ground to get a runner over that is what Mississinewa baseball is doing……. playing situational baseball.

The Tribe will host the Elwood Panthers tonight in a CIC showdown, The Indians are coming into tonight undefeated in the Central Indiana Conference.
