— Saturday's baseball doubleheader between Glenwood Springs and visiting Steamboat Springs had a little bit of everything.

Great pitching, big hits, not-so-great pitching and a whole lot of runs colored a split between the Demons and the Sailors.

Four innings of no-hit, nine-strikeout ball from Alan Cap­istron helped Steamboat to a 10-6 win in the opener. Cap­istron had to exit the game with a finger injury, which allowed the Demons to mount a rally against the Sailors bullpen.

Mario Gonzalez had a two-run home run — his fourth blast in six games this season — for Glenwood in the defeat.

The Demons bounced back in the nightcap, coming back from a 6-2 deficit to pull out the win.
