Grandview wins delayed game against Wapat

WAPATO - The Grandview Greyhounds yesterday finished a game started last month against the Wapato Wolves. Rain delayed the second game of a doubleheader on March 26, leaving the two baseball teams tied 6-6 in the fifth inning.

On Wednesday, the Greyhounds and the Wolves picked up where they left off and Grandview went home with a win.

The teams played the fifth, sixth and seventh innings, with Grandview scoring two runs to finish the game ahead, 8-6.

Coach Matt McKinstry said shortstop Erik Sauve was a highlight of the game, hitting 3-for-4, scoring three runs and stealing four bases.

Fellow Greyhound Derek Swearingen, meanwhile, went 2-for-4, with two doubles and driving in four runs.

Pitcher Jacob Rinehart started the game in March and returned to start the game yesterday, but was soon replaced with Mitchel Waggoner. Rinehart earned the win for his efforts, while Waggoner got the save.

"I was just pleased with the way we came out and took care of business," said Coach McKinstry. "We scored a run right when we got there, pitched well and threw a lot of strikes."

On the field, Sauve managed to make six of the nine outs at shortstop.

The team also had zero errors in the game. This is the second time they've had no errors in a game this season.

The Grandview Greyhounds (3-7, 3-9) will play a doubleheader against the East Valley Red Devils in Moxee this Saturday, April 16.
