Raider baseball needs another win


Raider Baseball is one win away from advancing to the regional tournament for the first time since 2011.

To get to this point, the Raiders had a doubleheader in Tonasket May 3 to close the regular season as the Tigers surprised the Raiders in the first game with a 10-4 win. But in the second game the Raiders turned around and trounced the Tigers by a score of 12-1.

With the number-four seed from the North going into districts, the Raiders knew they would face a tough team in the first round. In Moses Lake on Saturday, the Raiders faced the number-one seed Warden Cougars, who held the Raiders scoreless, 6-0.

In order to stay alive, the Raiders needed to shake off the loss and defeat the Waterville-Mansfield Shockers.

The game was close and even went to extra innings, when the Raiders prevented the Shockers from ending their season. The final score was LR 13, Shockers 8.

On Saturday, at the Paul Lausier Complex in Moses Lake, the Raiders will play the Okanogan Bulldogs at noon. Okanogan defeated Kittitas before losing to Brewster May 7. If LR wins, they will play the winner of the Liberty Bell/Kittitas game at 2:30 p.m. to decide seeding for regionals. If LR loses to Okanogan, the Raider season is over.
