For a brief moment it appeared Oakton College would get its chance to play two Sunday in the NJCAA Division II Region IV baseball tournament finals in Madison, Wis.

But a 2-run lead in the fifth inning was quickly erased and it was eliminated in a 7-4 loss to host Madison (43-11). Oakton (43-19) needed to win twice Sunday to advance to the NJCAA Division II World Series in Enid, Okla.

The Raiders took a 3-1 lead with a 2-run fifth but Madison came back with 3 runs in the bottom of the inning and added 3 insurance runs in the seventh.
