UPDATE: Hudson baseball falls in sectional final
After defeating Eau Claire Memorial, 3-2, in 12 innings in the sectional semifinal game Tuesday, the Raider baseball team lost to Stevens Point, 11-1, in five innings in the sectional final later in the afternoon in Wisconsin Rapids.
Stevens Point jumped out to a 4-0 second inning lead before scoring five runs in the fifth to earn a berth in next week's WIAA State Tournament in Grand Chute.
In the sectional semifinal earlier in the day, Blake Amborn delivered the game-winning hit in the bottom of the 12th inning to lift Hudson to a 3-2 victory over Eau Claire Memorial.
The Raiders finish the season with a record of 14-2.
