The Middletown baseball team jumped back onto the winning track last week by earning victories in all four of its games.

Key triumphs over Susquehanna Township on Monday, April 27 and Palmyra on Friday, May 1 wrapped around a pair of expected wins over Harrisburg on Tuesday, April 28 pushed the Blue Raiders (8-7, 6-7 in the Mid-Penn Conference's Keystone Division) over the .500 mark for the season with just a handful of games left on their regular-season schedule.  

While a division title is well out of reach, Middletown still is fighting for a spot in the upcoming District 3 Class AAA playoffs. Winning four straight contests certainly helped the Raiders' cause and kept those hopes alive.
