“We were able to squeeze some hits out and get a couple runs,” St. Al coach Joe Graves said. “Unless something dramatic happens, the knocks Puckett (out of the playoff hunt).”

St. Al is one game ahead of Lake in the race for the division title with a matchup with Sebastapol today. The matchup with Lake, which Graves said will most likely decide the division championship, is April 14.
