K-18 Baseball LogoGame 1: Russell 9, Hays 8

Game 2: Russell 16, Hays 8

The Russell K-18 Baseball squad took on Hays for the second time this season Thursday evening at Memorial Park. Unlike the first meeting in Hays, this doubleheader was more competitive.

In the opener Jackson Cross' walk-off hit gave Russell a 9-8 victory and Russell also took the nightcap 16-8 in a game that was stopped due to the run rule taking effect.

Russell improves to 9-3 on the season and will next be in action on Monday for a doubleheader in Ellis, which has handed Russell two of their three defeats this season.
