QUINCY - Trent Mottice pitched six-plus strong innings for the Grandview Greyhound baseball team this past Saturday in an 11-2 victory over host Quincy in the first game of a doubleheader.
Mottice gave up just a pair of runs on only five hits.
Grandview's offense, meanwhile, gave Mottice all the run support he would need by posting four runs in the first inning.
The Greyhounds chipped away with solo runs in four of the next five innings, before putting the game out of reach with a four-run seventh frame keyed by a two-run triple slammed by Ryan Moore.
Moore was 3-5 at the plate for Grandview, while teammates Derek Swearingen and Trey Greene were 2-3 with two RBI and 3-4 with three RBI, respectively.
In game two, Grandview mustered just four hits in a 7-2 loss. Swearingen and K.C. Flores knocked in Grandview's only runs.
"We continued to hit the ball real well, but we hit line drives right at people," Coach Matt McKinstry said of his team's loss in the nightcap. "K.C. (Flores) hit the ball 390 feet into centerfield and they caught it. That happens sometimes."
Erik Sauve and Swearingen split pitching duties in game two.
Grandview (3-7, 4-7) travels to Zillah this coming Thursday for a non-league game.
