Roseville High School knows all about one-run baseball games. The Tigers lost two of three to Woodcreek last week in their first Sierra Foothill League series this season, all decided by a run.

On Monday, Roseville visited Rocklin, which was coming off two blowout wins over Del Oro.

Dalton Blaser and Anthony Roberts combined to pitch a three-hitter to lead the Tigers over the Thunder 2-1 in yet another one-run game. Blaser had two of Roseville’s five hits, and the Tigers (8-4, 2-2 SFL) scored both runs in the top of the second inning.
