Layoffs are always cause for concern. The Eau Claire Regis baseball team hadn't played in a week until Tuesday night's game with Elk Mound. But the Ramblers bats came out on fire and their hiatus proved to be no problem as Regis continued their post-season with a 14-2 win over the Mounders.
Then in a regional final at Colfax on Wednesday, Regis continued to roll. Kurt Roubel got it done on the mound and at the dish. He recorded an RBI sacrifice fly in the third. Chris Musser provided a little insurance later with an RBI single as the Ramblers downed the Vikings 5-3.
