Rockets Get Walk Off Win

Taylor Sedam’s single to right with two outs in the bottom of the seventh gave the Rockridge Rockets a 4-3 win over Tremont in the Class 2A softball sectional semi-finals Wednesday in Edgington. The game was the completion of Tuesday’s suspended contest with the score tied at 3. The Rockets escaped a bases loaded, one out jam in the top of the 7th before pulling out the win. Top-ranked Rockridge will now meet third-ranked Stanford Olympia on the Spartans home field for the sectional championship on Thursday. WRMJ will broadcast the game scheduled to start at 4:30.
