Listen live online Saturday afternoon via JoeInsider.com as Kalamazoo Valley hosts Glen Oaks for a baseball doubleheader starting around 1 p.m. ET. Saturday’s games will conclude a four-game series with two games hosted by Glen Oaks Friday.
Both teams enter the weekend with eight games remaining within MCCAA Western Conference play as they battle for a top three spot and a berth in the NJCAA Region XII tournament. For the Cougars, they sit third at 10-6 after dropping their four games last week to 16-0 Kellogg. Grand Rapids is one game up on KVCC at 10-4 with four games against Kellogg this weekend. Next is Muskegon in fourth at 11-7, followed by Glen Oaks at 7-9.
Kalamazoo Valley holds a 13-15 overall mark and would be in solid postseason position with a strong showing against Glen Oaks and their final four games with last-place Ancilla. The Vikings have a tough end with the Cougars and Grand Rapids, but can knock down two teams directly in front of them if they succeed. Glen Oaks is 13-18 overall off a split last weekend with Lake Michigan College and a single-game win Tuesday over Mott.
Last season, the Cougars won three of four against the Vikings. KVCC opened up the series with dominant 14-1 and 11-0 road wins. Glen Oaks took game three in Kalamazoo 4-3, followed by a 12-3 Cougar victory in the finale.
You can listen live to both of Saturday’s games with the first action scheduled for around 2 p.m. ET.
