The Demons came away with three wins playing in Fairfield last night. The two teams started the evening pick up where they left off in the second game of a doubleheader in Washington earlier this season. They had to suspend the game because rain so they were finishing it yesterday. They picked it up in the third with the Demons up 5-2. Washington got a three run blast from Jake Redlinger to go up 8-2, and that really lifted the Demons bats as Washington would win 12-2 in five innings. Martin Ponce pitched for Washington.

In the second game the Demons got on the board first in the second inning with a double from Jordan Gier he was sacrificed in from third by Brian Roder. Washingotn scored three more in the fourth including a double from Austin Knupp. Washington also scored three in the sixth and in the seventh to win 10-1. Martin Ponce pitched four innings, Josh Moore and Brian Roder came on to throw after that.

In the final game of the evening, Fairfield took the early lead scoring three runs in the first off of six hits. The Demons down 4-0 in the third got a two run home run from Anthony Ossman. In the same inning T. J. Rausch hit a sacrifice fly to bring in another run to make it 4-3. In the fourth Colton Covington had a double and after being sacrificed over to third, Austin Knupp hit him in. The Demons would take the lead in the fifth with runners on, Jake Redlinger hit one in the left field corner to bring across two runs and go up 6-4. The Trojans had a bit of bad luck as with two on and Willie Ghent at the plate Ghent blasted a three run shot that would have given Fairfield a one run lead, but a balk was called before the pitch was thrown was called nullifing the home run. Fairfield scored one in the seventh but the Demons win 6-5. Josh Moore came on to pitch for the Demons in the second and threw strong. Washington is now 21-5 and 12-2 in the conference. They finish conference play hosting Fort Madison on Monday.
