BASEBALL: Raiders struggle at plate against LD, Wildcats; can't stop Hershey bats

johan4 8 15

Trying to catch up on games previously postponed by weather, the Middletown Blue Raiders squeezed three games into last week heading into the Easter weekend.

In the first two games, the Middletown nine had trouble getting hits and scoring runs. That was not so much the case on Thursday, April 2 when the Raiders collected eight runs after getting just a single tally in the previous two. However, the defense gave up 13 runs in that same outing and Middletown came away without a win in all three contests.  

As a result, the team slipped to 1-3 on the season (0-3 in the Mid-Penn Conference's Keystone Division). Coach Steve Shuleski is still trying to get a handle on his current squad as the season progresses.
