FORT SCOTT — Allen County Community College’s Red Devils had 12 hits in each of its two games Saturday against host Fort Scott Community College’s Greyhounds.

Dutton also had two singles. Josh Ward hit two singles and Dillon Hazlett doubled. Hitting a single each were Bretton Ater, Marcus Peavler, William Reddick, Stefaan Jefferson, who drove in the other run in the fourth, Michael Samuel and Wyatt Hall.
The teams played four scoreless innings in the second contest. Allen County broke it open with five runs in the fifth. Peavler and Ward each had RBI singles while Hazlett doubled in a run. Reddick had a two-run single.
The Red Devils produced two more runs in the sixth to go up 7-1. With two gone in the seventh, Peavler singled to chase home Hall, who had walked.
Peavler had three singles in the game. Ater, Reddick and Ward each hit two singles. Hazlett doubled and singled. Dutton had a base hit.
Mark Thompson, Ben Rister and John Michael Moore pitched in the game and allowed five hits. Thompson got the win.
The Red Devils improved to 10-6 in the Jayhawk Eastern Division and 18-10 overall.
