RAYMOND — Raymond’s Tyler Knott, Calvin Kosminskas and Zach Nelson shut down the Sacred Heart offense the final six innings while the Rockets’ offense chipped away at a five-run deficit, with a three-run eighth inning finally putting the Rockets over the top in a 10-7 Corn Belt League victory on Friday.
