Hillsboro and Marion face off in baseball regional today
School classifications and season records go out the window today when the Hillsboro/Peabody-Burns baseball team plays Marion/Centre at 1 p.m. in second round regional action at Southeast of Saline.
It’s a rematch of an early season doubleheader that Marion won 6-5 and 13-3. Marion enters as the favorite with an 18-1 record, No. 1 seed, and first-round bye.
Hillsboro, 6-15, stumbled into the tournament on a three-game losing streak, but won Monday’s first-round game against Remington 4-2.
The winner will play again at 4 p.m. for a berth in the 3A state tournament next week in Manhattan.
