GENESEO — The Geneseo Blue Devils defeated the Avon Braves in an early season game.
Seniors Matt Robinson and Sean LaGrou led the Blue Devils, scoring 2 runs each.
Also contributing to the win were junior Jason Valentine, senior Brian Linton, sophomore Jake Hamilton, and freshman Luke Harris, each of whom scored 1 run.
“It was nice to see the guys who stepped up in big spots today,” said Coach Nicholas Drollette of the victory. “We had an inning where we kicked it around a bit and it cost us. The boys really picked each other up. It was a character building win.”
The Blue Devils established an early game win with 1 run in the 1st inning, another run in the second inning, and three more in the 3rd inning.
The Braves began to catch up in the 4th inning as they scored 5 points to the Blue Devils’ 0, tying up the score at 5-5.
The Blue Devils, however, came back in the 6th inning to score 3 runs for a final score of 8-5.
The Braves return to host the Perry Yellowjackets Apr. 17 at 4:30 P.M., the same day that the Blue Devils travel to Caledonia-Mumford to take on the Raiders.
