Baseball team advances to District C championship game

Richland College’s baseball team will play for a chance to advance to the NJCAA Division III World Series on Sunday after the T-Ducks pounded Tyler Junior College, 14-6, to advance to the District C tournament championship game.

The T-Ducks, ranked No. 1 in the nation, will play Eastfield College in the championship game at noon.

Richland beat Eastfield, 5-1, in the opening game of the tournament. Because the T-Ducks haven’t lost a game in the district tournament, they will have to lose twice in order to get eliminated.
