Rockets edge Devils in Sectionals; Wildcats stop RCS in semifinals

Hubbard elevates Roxbury’s victory chances every time he climbs the hill as the Rockets’ pitching ace. From the right side of the batter’s box, Hubbard is a consistent contact hitter with awesome power to left field. And, once he reaches base, he navigates the base paths fearlessly with reckless abandon.
