Milton Raptors improve to 3-0
Jon Kas went 2-for-4 with four RBIs on Sunday to lead the Raptors to a come-from-behind 7-6 win over the Madison Rockers in a Southern Division game of the Rock River summer baseball league.
Milton improved to 3-0 on the season in rallying from an early 5-1 deficit.
With the game tied at 6-6 in the bottom of the seventh, Milton took the lead for good with an unearned run. Scott Steinke started the inning with an infield single and advanced to second on an error. Steinke eventually scored on Jeff Stone’s sacrifice fly.
Brett Fredricks went the distance for Milton to pick up the win. The righthander allowed 12 hits but worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth in winning his second straight game.
Milton hosts five-time South Division champion Clyman at 3:30 p.m. Sunday.
