    Two losses to start the 3A playoffs ended the Red Devils baseball team’s season Saturday, May 4 in Juab, where they lost to the Juab Wasps in a lopsided game that ended 1-11 and a much closer 2-3 contest to the Emery Spartans.

    The youthful Grand County High squad had a busy last week of the season. On Tuesday, April 30, the team finished up the regular season and split a doubleheader with the San Juan Broncos in Blanding. Grand lost the first game 1-15. The game only went five innings and Brody Williams hit a double.

    Grand won the second game 6-4. Williams was the winning pitcher, Brayden Cloud got a triple and Jarett Reidhead clocked a homerun for Grand. The Red Devils were very efficient in the second game, generating six runs off of six hits and one error. Grand scored one in the second, two in the third inning, two in the fifth and one run in the sixth. San Juan in contrast had two errors and 14 hits with only four runs to show for it.

    On Thursday, May 2, Grand County had a Region 15 play-in game against the North Sanpete Hawks, at North Sevier High School. The Red Devils beat the Hawks 15-13 and again, efficiency reigned supreme. Grand scored 15 runs off of 13 hits and three errors. North Sanpete picked up 13 runs with 17 hits and five errors. Every other inning in this game, Grand came up big.

    The Red Devils had three runs in the third, seven in the fifth, and five in the seventh. Kyler Helquist hit a double and Reidhead belted a triple. Tyler Lindsey was the winning pitcher.
