The Wellington Heat are battling to inch their way back near the top of the Jayhawk Baseball League standings. After defeating the second place team, El Dorado, last night 7-2 at Hibbs-Hooten; the Heat will host Derby tonight (June 27). The Twins and the Heat are currently tied for third in the JBL.
A win tonight, would tie the Heat with El Dorado in second place.
It's going to be a tough match-up for Wellington, as Derby is leading the season series against the Heat 3-1. The Twins blew out Wellington at Hibbs-Hooten Field on Tuesday night.
Also with a win tonight, the Heat would be primed for some payback as they head to Hays to face the league leading Larks over the weekend in a three game series. The Larks swept the Heat a couple of weeks ago when they came to Wellington.
