Meanwhile, the Greyhounds scored one run in the first and two in the third, giving Zillah an 11-3 win.

At the plate, Mottice went two-for-three with an RBI. Both hits were singles.

Wagoner also went two-for-three, hitting a double and driving in two runs.

The Greyhounds recorded four errors in the game.

McKinstry said his team is looking to have a better approach at the plate.

"We need to be swinging more aggressively," he said.

Grandview (2-5, 2-7) is hoping to end its four-game losing streak this Saturday when the 'Hounds host undefeated Selah in a doubleheader.
