The Raider baseball team notched a string of wins last week, defeating Oroville March 20, then defeating Bridgeport in both games of a doubleheader on Saturday.

Against the Oroville Hornets, tied 4-4 at the end of three innings, the Raiders began to pull away, scoring three runs in the fourth, two in the fifth, and six in the sixth, while shutting the Hornets down for a final score of 14-4.

"Our defense needs to get better behind our pitchers," Head Coach Billy Nicholson noted. "Our offense took some time to get going. Tony Nichols did a great job at the plate, collecting four hits, including a triple."

On Saturday, the Raiders annihilated the Bridgeport Mustangs in both games of a doubleheader, winning the first game 35-0, and the second 33-0.

"We played well against Bridgeport," Nicholson said.

The Raiders played yesterday in Oroville, results of which will be reported in next week's Star.

They play in Liberty Bell against the Mountain Lions in a doubleheader Saturday, with the first game scheduled for 11 a.m.
