RAHS baseball battling weather as much as anything

Cretin-Derham Hall, Woodbury and East Ridge may be the top three teams in the Suburban East Conference, but they’re nothing compared to the Roseville Area High School baseball team’s biggest foe so far this spring. The one thing that has given the Raiders the most trouble is the weather.

Through the first four weeks of the season, Roseville has played only five games. The rest of the teams in the conference have managed to squeeze in anywhere between nine and 13 games.

Roseville will try to do some catching up on the postponed contests this week as its schedule features nine games, including three doubleheaders.

The Raiders began the week with a record of 2-3 and sat in sixth place in the conference standings.

The only game Roseville got in last week came on Friday as the Raiders beat Park-Cottage Grove 9-5. With the game tied at 2-2 after five innings, Roseville put up four runs in the top of the sixth and three more in the seventh to pull out the victory.

Roseville’s other victory thus far came on April 22 against Stillwater. The losses came at the hands of Woodbury, White Bear Lake and East Ridge.

Among the games on the schedule this week is a trip to first-place Cretin on Tuesday. The Raiders then travel to Hastings for a doubleheader on Wednesday before playing their only home game of the week on Thursday against Park-Cottage Grove. Roseville plays another doubleheader on Friday at Mounds View and gets its third double dip of the week on Saturday at Forest Lake.
