GRANDVIEW – Playing a non-league game at home yesterday, Thursday, the Grandview Greyhound baseball team battled before falling 8-0 to Prosser.
It was one of the more competitive games of late for Grandview, which trailed just 3-0 in the third inning.
Coach Joe Mora said his team was much better in the field, cutting down on errors. “We got a lot of put outs,” the Grandview skipper said.
However, Mora noted the Greyhounds struggled to muster an offense against Mustang pitching. “They struck us out 15 times,” he said. “We couldn’t get our bats going.”
The lone bright spots at the plate for Grandview yesterday were Brendan Bardwell and Anthony Mendoza, who accounted for the only two Greyhound hits. Bardwell also stole three bases.
Anthony Ramirez got the start on the mound for Grandview, throwing five innings before making way for reliever Angel Abarca. Bardwell was Grandview’s catcher for the game.
Grandview (3-13) returns to CWAC play tomorrow, Saturday, when it hosts Ephrata.
