Lady 'Hounds split with Wapato

WAPATO - The Grandview girls softball players did their impression of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde last Saturday in a doubleheader at Wapato. The Lady 'Hounds got whipped in the first game 20-0 and then came back in the second game and won 8-6.

"Two different teams showed up," Grandview Assistant Coach Mark Ware said.

At press time, there were no available stats for either game.

"In the first game we couldn't get a hit, throw the ball or do anything," Ware said. "It was a game where we were absolutely flat."

Erica Solis started the game on the mound for Grandview and she was replaced by Rocky Rodriguez in the fifth inning. That's when Wapato poured on the runs and the 10-run rule came into effect, ending the game.

The second game was completely different. "We didn't change much," Ware said.

Rodriguez continued to pitch for the Greyhounds in the second game. This game the girls were focused, Ware said.

"The enthusiasm was there," he said. "They started having some fun in the second game and that can be contagious. They started to relax and away we went."

Solis hit an inside the park home run on the way to Grandview's victory. "She just crushed it," Ware said.

Grandview (1-1) will travel to play Prosser Tuesday, March 21, at 3:30 p.m.
