YAKIMA - The pitching was better than reflected in the final score of the Grandview baseball team's 10-1 CWAC South loss at East Valley yesterday.
Six of the Red Devils' runs were unearned off four Grandview errors.
The Greyhounds led 1-0 heading into the bottom of the third, when East Valley erupted for seven runs, only three of them earned.
Coach Mike Chester said Grandview starter Kevin Concienne (0-2) was doing well until the third inning, when a couple of walks coupled with some tough calls on the basepaths undid the Greyhounds.
"It started rolling downhill from there," he said.
Rigo Rodriguez, who accounted for Grandview's one run, threw three innings of relief to close out the game.
The Greyhounds put the ball in play, collecting eight hits, but again couldn't bring the runners home.
"We left a lot of guys on base," Chester said. "We'd get up there where we had a man on second and third but couldn't score."
Grandview's top hitters were Joel Ledesma and J.R. Camacho, who both went 2-for-3 at the plate.
The Greyhounds (1-3, 2-4) play again this afternoon at home to make-up a CWAC South game with Naches, rained out earlier this season.
