The #1 and #2 seeds in today's Baseball Sectional Final have quite the history between them. Boylan and Rock Falls met in the Sectional Final in basketball this past winter...With Boylan coming out on top.
Now the two teams meet in again in the Sectional Final in Class AA baseball..Seth Blair was a part of that Rocket team that lost to the Titans...
Down 3-1.In the fifth...Rock Falls sticks come alive....Shane Blair...Hits a grounder to short....but the throw gets by the Titans first baseman...Jared Hippen gets on his horse...He's one of two rockets who scored on the play..game tied at 3 In the 6th...Troy Eikenberry....gets all of that one...A two run shot to deep right. 5-3
And its the Senior Blair...Blowing it by Matt Sattelberg for the k...Rock Falls gets their Sectional Final revenge on Boylan...Then win 9-3. After the game we caught up with Blair on what it feels like to beat Boylan.
"BLAIR: It feels so good. I don't think in the last four sectionals, there has been a number 1 seed to win. We kinda felt being the number 2 seed, we weren't expected to win. But it always seems like the underdog wins in this sectional."
