Milton Raptors suffer critical loss
The Milton Junction Pub Raptors saw their postseason hopes come to an end Sunday.
Adam Kircher’s two-run double in the bottom of the seventh inning proved to be the difference as Johnson Creek rallied past Milton, 6-4, in a Rock River League game.
Milton fell to 9-7 on the season and was eliminated from the postseason with two games to play.
Josh Shere had three of Milton’s 11 hits, while his brother, Joe, suffered the loss despite a complete-game performance.
Milton will host Laurel Tavern of Madison on Sunday at Schilberg Park.
