Rangers force Tuesday night winner-take-all Section 7 baseball final

The Forest Lake baseball team has survived two straight elimination games and will play for the Section 7AAA title at 7 p.m. tonight, Tuesday June 5 at Schumacher Field. The Rangers routed top-seed Grand Rapids 12-3 this afternoon to stay alive and move one game away from a fourth consecutive trip to the state tournament.

Dylan Dresel went 4-5 with four RBI and Trent Rabel pitched 5.2 innings to earn the win. Forest Lake trailed early but took a 3-2 lead before pulling away with a five-run sixth inning off Grand Rapids ace GrantĀ Carlisle.
