BROWNTON - During a messy sixth inning, just when it seemed Raymond's 2011 amateur baseball season was coming apart, it was really all coming back together again.

Brandon-Evansville scratched together a five-run sixth to erase a two-run Raymond lead, but the Rockets rallied in kind in the seventh and tacked on a run in the ninth for an 8-5 win at Barney Tadsen Field in the first round of the Minnesota Class C State Amateur Baseball Tournament on Saturday.
