The Greyhounds scored 5 runs in the first inning as Alamilla started off with a double and scored on Justin Moran’s single. Logan West followed with a single that scored Alamilla, Paris then had 3 straight batters that walked with each scoring in the inning. The Greyhounds scored 2 more runs in the 2nd added one run in the 3rd inning, one run in the 4th inning and 2 runs in the 5th inning with Jamaal Washington hitting a double to drive in 2 runs. St. Patrick scored 2 runs on no hits off the Greyhounds in the first inning to take the early lead, but the Greyhounds quickly responded with their 4 runs in the first. Coach Barr was able to play all 19 players in the game, thus getting each player some game experience. “This was a good way to start the season. We have a long way to go. We need to improve with each game. Our pitching was good today. We made a few errors in the first inning which allowed them to score. We cannot give up 4 or 5 outs an inning and win. Logan West and Daniel Lemons hit the ball real well today. Robert Cooke did a great job behind the plate,” remarked Coach Barr.
