As reported in last week’s issue of The Times-Independent, the Red Devils defeated ALA in Spanish Fork on Monday, April 10, by a score of 24-2, with sophomore Brody Williams picking up the pitching victory.
After spending the night in Provo, the Red Devils faced Summit Academy in Draper on Tuesday afternoon, April 11. Due to a miscommunication, the game didn’t start until around 3:30 p.m., 90 minutes later than originally scheduled.
Grand opened the game with one run in the first inning, then added four more in the fourth, eventually beating Summit Academy 6-0. Junior Josh Jones went the distance on the mound for the Red Devils, picking up the shutout win and holding the Bears to just two hits.
Grand (now 14-2 overall, 5-1 in region play) is scheduled to play region rival Gunnison Valley twice this week. Gunnison (16-2 overall) is currently the No. 1 team in the 2A East with a 6-0 region record. According to a mutual agreement reached Monday after considering the weather forecast, Grand and Gunnison will switch venues for the two contests this week, playing at Moab on Tuesday, April 18 and at Gunnison on Friday, April 21.
