PREVIEW - DC Everest vs. Wausau-West

by Chris Conley

EVERYTHING EVERGREENS (FOX SPORTS WAUSAU-WSAU) This will be the most important week of the Evergreen's baseball season. And it comes after another 9-day weather-imposed layoff.

What lies ahead? Three conference games that are all at home, and are all win-able. The Evergreens will host Wausau-West on Monday, Wisconsin Rapids on Tuesday, and Marshfield on Thursday. I'd imagine the Evergreens will use ace pitcher Brady Borrell on Monday and again on three-days-rest against Marshfield. Both Everest and West have 1-2 conference records. West has a recency advantage, sweeping a doubleheader on Saturday against Waupun, 10-1 and 14-13.

The Warriors are on a three-game winning steak.

Everest and West have two common opponents. Both lost to SPASH (West, 5-0 and Everest, 1-0). The Warriors beat Merrill, 5-2; Everest fell to Merrill, 8-5.

West lost their best pitcher to graduation, and is not as good as the team that lost to Everest in two of three games last season. The Evergreens need a 3-game winning streak. Let's see if it starts today.
