The Monmouth-Roseville Titan baseball team has had their fair share of close games this season, with much of their games being decided by 2 runs or less. Monmouth-Roseville has three games left in the regular season before heading to Carthage on Monday for an IHSA class 2A first round regional matchup with the long-time rivals, Illini West Chargers. The youth-laden Titans are currently (5-14) but have wins in two of their last three games coming into tonight’s game at (19-5) Orion. Those wins were against teams that were regional champions last spring, United and Knoxville. With only one senior and a plethora of sophomores contributing, the Titans are a better team right now than they were at the start of the season, simply due to more varsity experience. Titan baseball coach Jordan Ball said as much during his weekly WRAM Morning Show interview on Wednesday morning.
The Titans play a makeup game on Wednesday at (19-5) Orion, before hosting (10-8) Sherrard on Thursday night at Sunny Lane Field in Monmouth for their final home game. They end the regular season on Friday night with a road game against (12-9) Bureau Valley in Manlius, Illinois.
We’ll have coverage of Wednesday night’s home finale on AM 1330/FM 94.1 WRAM, online at radiomonmouth.com or on our free smartphone ap, 1330 WRAM. Pregame is slated for 4:15, with first pitch at 4:30.
