Greenfield-Central High School
Richmond High School
The Richmond Red Devils (7-8) varsity baseball team hosted the Greenfield-Central Cougars (9-4) on Monday night in a non-conference contest at McBride Stadium that went eight innings – the outcome was a 5-4 victory for the Red Devils.
Sophomore Phillip Hobbs (4-1) went the distance in picking up the win on the mound. For the night, Hobbs scattered 10 hits while striking out 8 and walking 1 and allowing 3 earned runs over the eight innings.
Sophomore Josiah Sizemore reached base and took second on an infield error in the bottom of the eighth inning. Junior Parker Smith sacrificed Sizemore to third base with a beautifully placed bunt. Sophomore Mikey Vance was then intentionally walked to put runners at first base and third base and set up a doubleplay situation for the Cougars. Freshman Gabe Crowe then laced a single into right center field to score Sizemore and give the Red Devils a hard-fought 5-4 win over Greenfield-Central High School.
