'Hounds snaps seven-game skid

EPHRATA - The Grandview baseball team snapped its seven-game losing streak this past Saturday against Ephrata.

The Greyhounds landed a 5-2 victory over the Tigers in the opening game, but succumbed 11-0 in the nightcap.

In the first game, Derek Swearingen took to the mound and struck out six batters. Six Tigers connected with Swearingen's pitches, and two runs were scored against him on 31 at bats.

For the Greyhounds, Swearingen was 2-for-4, tagging a home run with one of his hits.

Teammates Brendan Bardwell, Edgar Delgadillo and Erik Sauve each scored runs for Grandview. Delgadillo was 4-for-4 batting and drove in three runs.

Also connecting with the ball for an RBI was Martin Sanchez.

The Greyhounds tallied 15 hits in their victory.

Two runs came in the opening inning, two runners tagged home plate in the third inning and the final run was scored in the seventh inning.

Ephrata scored a run in the third inning and another in the fifth.

In the nightcap, however, it was another story for the Greyhounds. The batters only connected for four hits.

Swearingen, Sauve, Bardwell and Chet Bardwell were able to get one hit apiece. But, they were unable to produce any runs for the Greyhounds.

Ephrata, on the flip side, opened the second game with two runs. In the third inning the Tigers scored eight more runs and a final run was scored in the fourth inning.

Pitching for Grandview were Anthony Ramirez and Martin Sanchez. Sanchez pitched to 14 Tigers and was relieved by Ramirez.

The duo netted three Ks, but seven errors were committed when Sanchez was on the mound, which contributed to 10 runs scored in the first three innings.

The Greyhounds (3-10, 4-11) will travel to Ellensburg tomorrow (Tuesday) in hopes of avenging an 11-1 loss suffered last Tuesday.
