In a Class 3A baseball sectional semifinal characterized by gift runs early, there was no doubt about the legitimacy of the final two runs Clemente scored against Glenbard South. The Wildcats’ David Gonzalez and Jerimiah Figueroa each parked solo home runs during a fourth-inning three-batter sequence to give Clemente, a traditional Public League power, the lead for good. The defining element to the conclusion of the Raiders’ season was hard-throwing senior southpaw Joseph Marciano. Glenbard South stranded 11 batters during its 6-5 loss Friday in LaGrange Park at the Nazareth sectional, which was completed a day late due to inclement weather.
