Red Devils break even in 5 games leading up to playoffs
Two win, two losses, one tie to close regular season ahead of May 24 playoff opener
HINSDALE – Hinsdale Central’s baseball team experienced a little bit of everything in the final week of the regular season.
The Red Devils topped Downers Grove North and Proviso East, fell to Hinsdale South and Lyons Township and tied Naperville North before they were scheduled to start the postseason at 4 p.m. today at home against Wabuonsie Valley.
In a final prep for the postseason, Central (16-13-1) fell to LT 8-3 in a nonconference matchup Monday. The host Lions staked themselves to an 8-0 lead, including a five-run fourth inning, before the Red Devils plated three in the top of the sixth. Max Peters and Jared Eck walked to start the frame before Chris Botsoe laced a one-out triple to score them both. Botsoe scored on Matt Muellner’s ground out to first base. Central managed just three hits (Justice Camalick and Tyler Ward singled in the fifth) and was undone by five errors.
