Boys Varsity Baseball · New Castle Too Hot to Handle, Red Devil Baseball Drops Two


It is often said that history repeats itself. The members of the Richmond Red Devil baseball program can’t seem to see that happen soon enough. Prior to 2003, Richmond owned the “rivalry” with their counterparts from New Castle winning 32 of the forty contests recorded. However, since then, the Trojans have changed the fortunes of each program winning 24 of the past 30 to include both contests Saturday at McBride Stadium.

Game one began with the Red Devils taking an early 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. And that’s where the home team’s highlights ended. Defensive woes plagued the RHS defense. Richmond’s hitters hit several hot shots back up the middle. New Castle’s defense made play after play thwarting the home team’s efforts to continue the positive vibes of a previous three game winning streak. The result was a 12-5 loss for the Red Devils.

Josiah Sizemore had two hits in game one to lead the Red Devils. Mikey Vance had a hit and two runs batted in and Gabe Crowe added a single and an RBI. Phillip Hobbs had a double. Brice Brown and Colton Fox each added singles. Brice Brown was credited with the pitching loss. Rylan Huntley picked up the pitching victory for the Trojans.

Game two was much to do as game one was. New Castle finished the Saturday sweep with a 10-5 win over Richmond. Gabe Crowe and Mikey Vance had two singles each in the second game. Mason Brewer, Jarred Flood, Josiah Sizemore, and Nick Turner also added singles in game two. Josiah Sizemore took the loss on the mound. Nick Besecker earned the mound win for New Castle.

Richmond (6-4) plays on the road at Anderson in a North Central Conference game Tuesday while New Castle (7-2-1) plays at Noblesville the same evening.
