Cedar Rapids Prairie is on a roll.

Three days after the Hawks won their first state baseball title, alum Scott Schebler was recalled by the Cincinnati Reds and promptly blasted a three-run homer off Seung Hwan Oh for a 7-5 win over St. Louis.

Schebler started the season in Cincinnati, hitting .188 in 27 games. He’s been red hot for Triple-A Louisville, batting .311 with 13 homers in 75 games.

His first career home run came as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers last season.
