GENESEO–The Geneseo Blue Devils defeated their long time rivals the York Knights in a great home game with a final score 8-3.
Both teams started off with great run production within the first two innings of the game. The Knights were first to strike in the first inning scoring only 1 run but continued to hit the ball hard into the second inning tacking on 2 more runs.
The Blue Devils quickly struck back in the first inning to take back the lead 2-1 due to some good hitting by third baseman Ryan Lagrou who nearly hit for the cycle going 3-4 and scoring 3 runs throughout the game.
Blue Devil pitcher Parker Burnette originally struggled in the first two innings of the game and was getting hit hard due to pitches that were being left over the plate.
