The Washington Demons and the Highland Huskies tried to get their baseball game in last night but lightning disrupted things. They went four innings before the lightning in the distance prompted the postponement. In a game heard on KCII, the Huskies got up 5-0 with a mix of well played small ball and some Demon miscues. Washington started Freshman Elijah Wood and Demon Head Coach Nathan Miller says they had a tough time backing him up. 80821 But the Demons would start to turn things around in the bottom of the fourth with a base hit from Jordan Gier and a two run home run from Jake Redlinger and later in the inning Austin Knupp homered to make it a 5-3 game. The game was suspended in the top of the fifth. Miller is confident given the short distance between towns that they’ll be able to get together to finish the game at some point.
The Demons are now scheduled to host Mount Pleasant for a conference doubleheader. Washington is 2-0 in conference play with a doubleheader sweep against Keokuk on Monday.
