SALEM, OH- It’s been a rocky start to the season for the Lisbon Blue Devils.  Leads have been hard to hold late, and Thursday proved to be much of the same.  Lisbon lost the lead late in a 7-4 defeat to Salem on Thursday. The game was tied at three with Salem batting in the bottom of the fifth when Blaise Exline doubled on a 1-0 count, scoring one run.

The Blue Devils opened up scoring in the first inning when Seth Seddon induced Nick Mundy to hit into a fielder’s choice, but one run scored for Lisbon.

On the bump, Seddon earned the win for Salem. He surrendered three runs on one hit over four and two-thirds innings, striking out five. Josh Young and Ricky Enlow entered the game out of the bullpen and helped to close out the game in relief.
