In what was the last week of baseball for the immediate future, Navarre dropped a pair of games and fell to 3-6 on the year.
Of their nine games, the Raiders have played from behind in all but one. Last week, it was Choctaw putting a pair of runs up in the second and third inning in a 4-2 win. Against Milton, the Panthers rushed four runs in the second inning and won 8-5.
Each game was eventually decided by just two runs. And in each, there was also a chance to claim victory. The Raiders stranded 13 base runners in those two losses. With a lucky bounce or two, head coach Chris Williams said, “the record could be either way right now.”
In their loss to the Indians, a two-out rally in the bottom of the fifth had Raiders on the corners with the clean-up batter at the plate.
