Red Bud gets big redemption win

by Tyrus Carter

The Red Bud Musketeers continued play on the diamond this last week, starting with a home game against the Okawville Rockets.

Starting was Will Simpson, who had an excellent performance, going all seven innings while allowing only two runs, none earned. Simpson also racked up 11 strikeouts with only one walk. Red Bud’s offense tallied 10 hits on the day, helped by sophomores Dylan Minemann and Chase Lucht. Lucht had two hits and two RBI’s while Minemann had a solo home run. While only scoring six runs, Red Bud was able to get the revenge win against the Rockets, 6-2.
