RedDevilsLogoOREM —Grand County Red Devils took second in the State 2-A Baseball Championship in Orem, yesterday. Emery reclaimed its 2nd crown in a row with a 16-9 win over Grand County.

Emery started the day with a rematch against Beaver and quickly fell behind 4-1 before storming back to win by a convincing 13-6 margin.

Next up was Grand and the task of winning not one, but two against a seemingly well-rested Red Devil squad.

In that one, Emery exploded for eight runs in the top of the seventh to extend a slim 4-3 lead to 12-3. Grand had no illusions of going down easy heading into the final game and matched Emery run for run until the bottom of the fourth, when the Spartans put up a four-spot to take an 11-8 lead into the final three innings. Emery put things away quite emphatically in the bottom of the sixth.
