Update: Mistakes costly for Russell County in loss to Spanish Fort

SPANISH FORT, Ala. -- For weeks, Russell County baseball coach Tony Rasmus had stressed the need to limit mistakes that would cost it when it played top-ranked Spanish Fort. On Saturday, in the rubber match of the best-of-three semifinal series between the two teams, the Warriors found out again why that was so important. Spanish Fort played a near flawless Game 3, defeating Russell County 4-3 to advance to its fourth consecutive state title game. The Toros have won each of the other three title series’. For the Warriors (43-8), it is the third consecutive time they have been ousted from the playoffs by Spanish Fort. The Toros beat the Warriors 4-3 in Game 3 of their semifinal series on Saturday night. The game pushed back four hours by heavy rain that moved through the Mobile area early Saturday.
