The Russell K-18 summer youth baseball team is off to a 4-0 start to the summer.

Russell began its season by sweeping a pair of non-league games against Larned and Ness City on May 28 in Larned. Russell beat the host team 1-0 and then cruised to a 15-3 victory over Ness City.

Russell topped Waconda 12-6 in their league opener on the road on June 3 and then shut out Smith Center White 15-0 on Monday, June 7 in their first home game at Shaffer Field.

Russell continues league play on Thursday, June 10 in Lincoln at 6:30 PM.

The first game each night is a 7-inning contest and counts for the team's overall record and league standing. Game two is a 3-inning exhibition contest.

Alan Penka is the head coach of the Russell K-18 baseball team.
