Baseball playoff update

The baseball teams from Roseville Area High School and Concordia Academy saw their seasons come to a conclusion a day apart last week. Roseville went 0-2 in the post-season while the Beacons lasted one round longer and finished 1-2.

 

Roseville

The Raiders managed only two victories during the regular season and was unable to add to that total in the playoffs. Roseville lost to top-seeded Woodbury and fifth-seeded North St. Paul.

Roseville gave Woodbury all it could handle on May 26 after losing big to the Royals twice in the regular season. The Raiders led by a run after four and a half innings but Woodbury used a three-run fifth to pull out a 4-2 win.

The Raiders held an 11-7 advantage in hits and were led by Jacob Spencer, who went 3-for-3 with a double, a walk and a run scored. Nathaniel Zubulake and Teague Bogenholm drove in Roseville’s runs.

The loss dropped Roseville into the losers bracket, where it took on North St. Paul on Memorial Day. The Polars won that game 9-0 to end Roseville’s season.

 

Concordia Academy

Concordia Academy picked up a playoff victory in the first round but dropped its next two games and was eliminated.

Following an 8-2 win over St. Paul Washington on May 25, Concordia Academy took on second-seeded New Life Academy the next day. New Life sent the Beacons to the losers bracket by beating them 16-3.

Things weren’t much easier in the losers bracket as Concordia’s first opponent was third-seeded St. Agnes, which was upset in the second round by sixth-seeded St. Paul Academy. The Aggies avoided a second straight upset by beating Concordia Academy 6-2 on May 31.
