Baseball season ends

Leading 3-0 in a quest for the first win of the season, Central Lakes College gave up four runs in the last three innings and lost 4-3 to Northland Sunday at Thief River Falls. The Raiders led 3-0 in the bottom of the fifth. Northland scored once in the fifth, twice in the sixth and won it with one run in the bottom of the seventh. “It was one of our best games of the year,” CLC coach Pat Held said, “and we saved it for the end.” Pete Lucken pitched a complete second game for CLC. The Raiders received base hits from Hunter Young, Jaron Hanson, Lucken, Ted Rohr (RBI single), Tony Madsen and Mike Gontarek. In the first game Sunday, Rempel, Adam Tautges, Tim Chandler and Madsen singled. CLC collected just five hits in losing 12-2 and 16-1 to Ridgewater in a Central Division doubleheader Saturday that was moved to Spicer since the field in Willmar was under water. Jon Rempel, Josh Edwards and Ted Rohr singled for the only CLC hits in the first game. Rempel and Rohr had the only hits in the second game. The Raiders finish 0-14 in the division, 0-31 overall.
