The East Ridge baseball team used a consistent offensive attack Wednesday to beat Park 9-1. Samuel Cobbs pitched four innings for the Raptors to earn the win, allowing just one run on three hits.
East Ridge scored in six of the seven innings, highlighted by a four-run fifth inning. Michael Hietpas went 2 for 2 and drove in a run for the Raptors, who are 14-5 this season and currently sit atop the Suburban East Conference standings.
The conference race is tight heading into the final weekend of play. East Ridge holds a 1/2 game lead over Cretin-Derham Hall entering its Friday matchup against Roseville. Mounds View is third just a game back, and Woodbury is fourth 1 1/2 games behind.
