Clint Stoy trotted out a new-look lineup on Friday in the final regular-season series of the year against Coffeyville Community College.
After an incredible start to the season, the Red Devils have been struggling of late so the Allen coach decided to stack his best hitters at the top of the lineup and see if he could find a spark.
Stoy moved Robby Enriquez from the three-hole into the leadoff spot and Kole McKinnon inherited the second spot for game one.
While the top hitters remained productive in game one — Enriquez, McKinnon and Sky-Lar Culver, the three hitter, had three hits — the four through nine hitters only managed one hit between them in the 10-1 game one loss.
Jesse Kutzke took the loss on the mound, allowing six earned runs on 11 hits while striking out five.
Game two began much better with the Red Devils jumping out to a 7-4 lead after five innings.
Chase Gooding pitched the first five frames and allowed just two earned runs on six hits with seven strikeouts.
The bullpen couldn’t hold the lead however as Conner Bond allowed four runs while just recording four outs.
Jake Butterfield gave up the final three Coffeyville runs in the seventh inning as Coffeyville was able to record the 11-7 victory.
Nathan Best led the Red Devils with three hits while Ku’Ron Summons, Derek Sallee and Culver each had two.
The series finales in Coffeyville were originally scheduled for Saturday, but the games have been pushed back to today at 5 p.m., and 7 p.m.
