The Grand County High School baseball team’s regular season is scheduled to get into full swing this week, as the Red Devils head to Castle Dale on April 2 for a region game against the Emery Spartans.

Early last week, during spring break, the Red Devils traveled to New Mexico for a pair of games. They defeated the Kirtland, N.M., Broncos 8-7 on Monday, March 25, but lost to the Piedra Vista Panthers the following day by the score of 13-5.

In the game against the Panthers, Grand had a 5-1 lead heading into the fourth inning, but gave up nine runs before the inning was over, allowing Piedra Vista to build a sizeable lead. Koi Cook ended up being the losing pitcher.

The defeat marked only the third loss this year for the Red Devils. Grand’s record is now 8-3 overall in the preseason. The Red Devils have played just one region game to date, a 12-8 win over the San Juan Broncos on March 19, but Grand has a full slate of region games scheduled throughout April.

The Red Devils’ next scheduled home games will be a varsity doubleheader against South Sevier on Friday, April 5. Game times are 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
