The Maplewood Richmond Heights Blue Devils baseball team struck first.
The Maplewood-Richmond Heights baseball team missed out on a district championship Saturday, falling 3-4 to Brentwood in the finals of the Class 2 District 5 Tournament. In the bottom of the eighth, after Brentwood junior Kevin Smith crushed a triple to deep right field, the Blue Devils (8-14, 3-6) opted to intentionally walk senior Ryan Marshall and freshman Dylan McGehee. That brought junior Tyler Jones to the plate with only one out. Jones tapped a swinging bunt just a few feet in front of home plate toward MRH pitcher Kevin Sapp, who tossed the ball to catcher Samuel Martin. Smith slid into home and was called safe as Martin couldn't hang on to the ball. "All I told Tyler was to put a bat on the baseball," Brentwood (16-6, 7-2) coach …
