Red Devils Baseball Lose in a Close Game Against Campbell County. The Red Devils traveled to Campbell County on April 17. Trot Russell started out on the mound and lasted 3 innings, but was relieved by Eben Hansen in the fourth inning after giving up 2 runs to tie the game at 5. The two teams were tied going into the last inning. Hansen started the 5th with a walk and a double with no outs. Red Devils chose to load the bases with the #4 hitter up. Hansen struck the next batter out but then lost the next batter to a walk that was resulting in Campbell County winning with a walk-off base on balls. With Campbell County scoring a walk-off, the Devils lost 5-6. The Devils did not have a strong offense, nor did they have a strong defense.
