Rider's seventh-ranked baseball team made it look easy in a 14-0, no-hit victory over Frenship in game one of their Region I-4A Best of 3 Quarterfinal at Hunter Field yesterday.
The Raiders looked to be in control, leading 9-5 going into the top of the seventh of game two. The Tigers had other ideas, scoring five unanswered runs to steal away the game and extend the series.
Rider took a breath and bounced right back with an 11-3 win in game three. The Raiders will play Arlington Heights in the Regional Semifinals.
It took a rally for Archer City to top Olney in game one of their Region II-A Best of 3 Quarterfinal.
In Game two at Graham, no such rally was needed. The Wildcats scored four runs in the top of the second, including back-to-back RBI's from Dawson Reid and Carter McGregor, to set the tone early.
