Red Devils go extra to get opening win
April 2, 2014Richmond High School
With two outs, the ball in center field and Tanner Marlow heading to third base, Tyler Lairson still did not consider trying his luck and sending the junior home in extra innings.
Instead, Richmond’s first-year coach had confidence in the bat of Tyler Slawson.
Slawson rewarded that faith in a big way. His two-out, eighth-inning single brought Marlow home — and lifted the Red Devils to a 5-4 season-opening victory over Hagerstown on Tuesday at McBride Stadium.
