MONTEVIDEO — A five-run fifth inning, capped by Jared Roiland’s bases-clearing triple, proved the difference in Madison’s 7-5 win over Osakis in a Division II, District 7 Final Four elimination game on Thursday.

Madison will play Morris, which fell to BOLD 6-5 in Thursday’s winners’ bracket game, at 6:30 p.m. today in Montevideo. The winner will play BOLD for the championship at 11 a.m. Saturday. A second game, if needed, would follow.

Either way, if today’s loser falls to BOLD on Saturday they would still make the state tournament since BOLD is hosting this year’s tournament, which is an automatic entry.

Madison led 2-1 heading into the fifth but Madison scored twice and had the bases loaded when Roiland came to bat. He sliced a ball down the right field line that glanced off the glove of the Osakis right fielder, who thought the ball was foul and hesitated before chasing it down. Three runs scored ahead of Roiland, who legged it into third, and Madison led 7-2.

Osakis chipped away at the lead with single runs in the fifth and sixth. They scored two in the bottom of the seventh and had two on before starter and winner Colby Siegert and the Madison defense put a stop to the comeback.

Madison’s Brandon Hill was 2-for-4 and Preston Kraft doubled in a run in the fifth. Siegert tripled and drove in a run and Dylan Lillejord drove in a run on a second-inning sacrifice.

Siegert worked all seven innings, allowing three earned runs and striking out three.
