On Thursday, April 21, The Greyhound Baseball Team beat the East Valley Knights in a very close game. The duel was held at Quan field in Pullman, the home of the Hounds. The game was held at zero until the fourth inning, when the Knights scored a single run to take the lead. The Hounds responded instantly returning the blow and tying the game up, after a triple from freshman Jake Wells that scored one. In the fifth, the Hounds let up four runs after a few walks, a hit, and an error. The game was silent for the next three innings, despite a one run inning from the Hounds in the sixth, both teams playing clean baseball with a score of Knights 5, Hounds 2. In the top of the seventh inning, the Hounds needed to get out of an inning fast, which happened of course with three batters up for the Knights and three batters out. In the bottom of the seventh, the Hounds were down by four, looking for a way to get something going. Jake Cillay was the first batter up and managed to get on base after an overthrow, which lit a fire in the Hounds and Payton Utzman brought in Cillay later in the inning to score a run, now trailing by three. With two people on, Brandon Lees stepped up to the plate, his first time in the game that day. There were two outs in the game and the Hounds were desperate for something amazing to happen, and of course it did. Lees put the ball in play down the first base line scoring one and leaving the tying run on third. After Lees' at bat, the Knights took out their starting pitcher Colin Spendlove, who had struck out eight, and brought in a reliever. Spencer Walker was the final man at the plate for the Hounds and he knew he had a job to do. On the first pitch, Walker rocketed a ball over the left fielders head, scoring the two runs and giving the Hounds the lead and win. The final score of the battle was Greyhounds, 6, Knights, 5. The Hounds also out-hit the Knights in a margin of 7-5, with Payton Utzman leading the Hounds with two. After this win, the Hounds advance to fourth place with a record of 4-6 in league. The next game will be against Moscow at Moscow on Monday April 25th. Go Hounds!
