Greyhounds pitch two no-hitters against Toppenish

GRANDVIEW - Grandview defeated Toppenish twice in its first league games last Saturday, taking out the Wildcats with two no-hitters in the double-header series.

"The team was pretty nervous coming in, but settled in quickly," said Coach Matt McKinstry. "Erik (Sauve) did a good job of establishing his tempo on the mound."

Sauve pitched the first game for the Greyhounds, giving up only one walk and striking out 10 in a complete game no-hitter to beat Toppenish 8-0.

In the first game, leadoff hitter Anthony Perez scored three runs. He reached on one hit and twice by errors on the part of the Wildcats.

Chet Bardwell went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a sacrifice, and scored twice. Derek Swearingen got an RBI double.

"Once they settled in they played pretty well," said McKinstry. "After we won the first game, it carried over into the second game."

In the second game, Mitchel Wagoner tallied seven Ks and seven walks in his complete game no-hitter. The Greyhounds took the second game 6-0 over the Wildcats.

Perez went 2-for-3 in the second game, Bardwell was 2-for-4 and Sauve, coming off his no-hitter, went 1-for-3 with 2 RBIs.

Grandview (2-0, 2-1) will next play Tuesday, March 20, at Quincy.
