Columbus Junior Reds Sweep Season-Opening Doubleheader

The Owens Wealth Advisors Columbus Junior Reds opened their season Thursday night by sweeping a home doubleheader against Lincoln Standing Bear. 

In the opening game, the Junior Reds scored three runs in the bottom of the fourth to expand their lead to 5-1 en route to a 7-2 victory.  In the nightcap, the Columbus juniors scored four runs in the fourth inning and three more in the fifth to pull ahead 7-2, then survived a three-run rally by the visitors in the sixth and hung on for a 7-5 win. 

The Junior Reds will visit Fremont to play another twin bill next Tuesday.
