The Richmond High School baseball team traveled to Croswell-Lexington on Thursday and defeated Yale 9-1 in the regional semifinal.

The Blue Devils started the scoring in the bottom of the second inning when Joe Lindman scored on a throwing error. It set up a flurry of goals for the offense: Logan Evans’ bases-loaded triple blew the score open to 6-0, and though Yale added a run in the fourth, Joey Joudi answered twice with a two-run double in the second half. of the collection. Joudi also scored the Blue Devils’ final run on a single by Luke Pastuschyn.

Anthony Bonnetti pitched all seven innings for the Blue Devils, striking out seven batters en route to the win.

The win secured Richmond (20-9) a spot in Saturday’s Division 2 regional championship.

They will face a fellow Macomb County team: the Lutheran North Mustangs, who improved their record to 21-13 on Thursday with a 13-1 win over Hazel Park in six innings.

After two scoreless innings, the Mustangs’ offense finally broke out with two runs in the third inning thanks to run-scoring hits from Cameron Head and Joe Chabot. It was in the fourth inning, however, when a 2-0 game was blown open with a five-run frame: Braden MacKenzie’s two-run single, a passed ball and a two-run double by Chabot put the Mustangs ahead by seven runs.

And although Hazel Park responded with a run in the bottom of the fifth, it was far from enough. Lutheran North put the Vikings on the ice by scoring six runs in the top of the sixth inning, with the big hit being a three-run single by Adam Narr. Jackson Danis completed his second and final scoreless inning on the mound in the bottom of the sixth inning to earn the mercy rule victory.

Chabot had two hits and a game-high four RBIs. Head, Brody Law, Nathan Vani and MacKenzie also drove points for the Mustangs.

Richmond and Lutheran North play at Howell High School on Saturday, June 8 at 12:30 p.m. The winner will be crowned regional champion, but they won’t have long to celebrate: whoever wins will be right back in action against the winner of DeWitt vs. Flint Powers Catholic for a Division 2 quarterfinal.
