#7 Raiders Drop Game 1 to Burleson

The Rider Raiders dropped Game 1 of the Region I-4A Finals series to Burleson 2-1 Thursday night at Hunter Field in Abilene.

The Raiders led the Elks 1-0 after Gage Green drove in Ben Bates in the third inning, and Cameron Allen looked like he would make it stand up.

But Burleson rallied for two runs in the bottom of the 6th on RBIs by Brandon English and Daulton DeLeon, and held on for the win.

Game 2 will be Friday at 4 p.m., back at Hunter Field.

If Rider wins that game, then Game 3 would be Saturday, also at 4 p.m. at the same place.
