East Ridge tops Cretin, moves into section semi
The Raptors jumped out to a 3-0 lead through three innings, but had to survive a scare as the Raiders closed the deficit to 4-3 with a pair of runs in the fifth inning.
East Ridge senior hurler Drew Molin notched the win, tossing five innings and striking out seven.
The Raptors will take on Mahtomedi, the section’s top seed, on Saturday night in the section semifinal at Midway Stadium. The winner of that battle will automatically advance to the section final on June 3, while the loser will drop into the loser’s bracket.
