GRAND JUNCTION, COLORADO - It took a good all-around team to end the great run by the Midland College baseball team this year.
No. 3-ranked Iowa Western used an aggressive offense and a great start from right-hander Kevin Elder to run-rule the Chaparrals, 11-1, in six innings during the JUCO World Series at Suplizio Field on Thursday night.
The loss ends the Chaps’ season at 42-25 and they finished in third place in only their second appearance in the tournament.
Iowa Western (55-11), making its 15th appearance in the World Series, advances to play Miami Dade in the championship at 8 p.m. CDT Friday. The Reivers are seeking their third national championship.
