EARLY INNING BLUES? Raiders fall behind quickly in tough losses to Wildcats, Hershey

The Middletown baseball team’s visions for a possible division title and a berth in the postseason playoffs were muddied a bit as the Blue Raiders dropped a pair of decisions last week in the Keystone Division of the Mid-Penn Conference.tinyjumppic5 7 14Photo by Phil Hrobak - Middletown third baseman Jordan Handley gets airborne on a throw to first base against Hershey.

 

Both losses – to Mechanicsburg and Hershey, a pair of teams the Raiders defeated in the season’s first half – came about due to rough starts and a failure to rally.

 

With the losses, the Raiders slipped back under .500 for the season (6-7, 6-4 in the division) with seven games remaining on the 2014 schedule entering this week, including a visit to Lower Dauphin on Thursday, May 8; a doubleheader at Greencastle-Antrim on Saturday, May 10; and a re-scheduled road game at Bishop McDevitt on Monday, May 12.

 

Several victories during the final stretch will keep the door open to the postseason for the team.
