After a rough weekend, the Cyclones baseball team will have to hold down its home field against Kankakee Community College on Wednesday.

The Cyclones have a chance to shift their momentum in the right way this week with six games ahead of them. The last time they met Kankakee, Moraine was able to walk away with a victory.

Of course, this season is a new year and no win is guaranteed. The Cyclones currently hold a 7-12 overall record while Kankakee Community College has won an impressive 21 games this season. 

Last Tuesday, Moraine went against Prairie State in a doubleheader. Moraine fell short with a score of 8-7 in the first game but pulled back and won 5-3 in the second matchup.

Kankakee Community College has also faced Prairie State this season but has walked away victorious both times.

In order to keep up with KCC, the Cyclones are going to have to start putting some power into their offense as well as lock down their defense, similar to what they’ve done every win so far this season.

Sophomore Colin Bulger explained some minor tweaks the team is attempting to make on a day-to-day basis.

“We’ve got the lineup to do it. It’s just a matter of attack and what we’re looking for,” said Bulger. “If we’re looking for a fastball attack, don’t let it go by, if we’re sitting curveball, see the spin and take it for a ride.”

KCC isn’t the only team the Cyclones are going up against this week. On Tuesday, they face Morton College for a double header. On Thursday, they head to Joliet Junior College to face the Wolves. And finally, on Saturday, they finish off the week with a double header against the College of Lake County.
