The Russell American Legion Post 99 Senior Baseball team under new head coach Tanner Rome opened the 2019 season Sunday afternoon with a doubleheader on the road at Beloit.

In the first game, Russell trailed 5-4 going to the top of the seventh inning before taking the lead with a pair of runs.  Beloit however forced extra innings with a run of their own in the bottom of the seventh.  After Russell regained the lead at 7-6 with a run in the top of the eighth, Beloit came back with two in the bottom of the frame for the walk-off win.  Kirk Huser led Russell offensively with four hits and two runs scored while Kyle Farmer (0-1) took the loss in relief.

In the nightcap, Russell was held to just two hits in a game that ended with the 10-run rule kicking in after Beloit plated three runs in the bottom of the fourth.  Walker Braun (0-1) took the loss for Russell.

The Senior squad will next see action Sunday, June 9 at Smith Center with a doubleheader beginning at 4 p.m.
