ELLENSBURG – Though competitive for four of five innings at Ellensburg yesterday, the Grandview Greyhound baseball team couldn’t overcome the Bulldogs’ 10-run rally in the first frame in Tuesday’s 15-2 loss.
“They had five hits in the first inning, but we committed four errors and that messed it up for us,” said Grandview Coach Joe Mora, who noted the Greyhounds committed just one fielding miscue over the final four innings.
Grandview cracked the scoreboard in the third inning with a two-out, two-run rally. With runners on first and second and down to their last out in the third, Greyhounds Anthony Mendoza and Anthony Ramirez delivered clutch RBI hits.
Brendan Bardwell and Jorge Oros shared pitching duties for Grandview, with Ramirez serving as catcher.
Oros and Bardwell also swiped two bases and one base, respectively.
Grandview has scheduled a non-league game at home tomorrow, Thursday, against Prosser. Mora said the Greyhounds are looking to fill out their schedule with make-up games because Wapato’s baseball program has folded.
Mora said the two contests originally scheduled with Wapato are now forfeit victories for the Greyhounds (3-11, 3-13).
