'I LIKE WINNING': Raider coach praises team after two big division wins

Posted

A welcomed attitude adjustment within the Middletown baseball team’s ranks produced positive results last week, as the Blue Raiders got on the winning track with a pair of victories in the Keystone Division of the Mid-Penn Conference.tinyslide4 9 14Photo by Jodi Ocker - Middletown’s Brett Altland (3), above, is thrown out at home plate by Palmyra despite his slide. The Blue Raiders still won the game, 1-0.

 

The adjustment showed up on Tuesday, April 1 when the Raiders toughed out a 1-0 win over visiting Palmyra, and again on Thursday, April 3 in a big 8-0 triumph over Mechanicsburg.

 

The pair of wins evened the Middletown squad’s record at 2-2 and showed the real potential of this year’s squad.

 

Coach Steve Shuleski noted that in the Raiders’ two previous losses the players needed to start playing as a team – and the Raiders responded by pulling together last week.

 

By beating two quality programs like Palmyra and Mechanicsburg, the Raiders proved they can be legitimate contenders in 2014.
