‘C’ Hounds improve to 5-1

Coach Adam Poole and his Manchester Greyhounds Class “C” baseball squad continued their winning ways earlier this week, picking up wins over Peebles and North Adams to improve their record for 2015 to five wins against just a single loss.

On Monday, June 22, the Greyhounds traveled to Peebles to battle with Peebles #2 and came out with a 13-6 victory, thanks mostly to an eight-run fifth inning that broke a 4-4 tie. Jackson Poole led a potent Manchester offense, going 3 for 4, scoring 3 times, and driving home a pair. The winners got a pair of runs batted in each from Rylan Bailey and Brayden Young, with Denton White adding a three-base hit and scoring twice while Wyatt Taylor also crossed the dish two times.

On the mound for the Hounds, it was Bailey firing the six-inning complete game, giving up eight hits, six earned runs, walking four, but striking out 12 Peebles hitters.

Like many Knothole teams in the area, the Hounds came right back to play the next night (June 23), this time on their home field, and their bats stayed red-hot as they pounded out 15 hits and scored 27 runs in a 27-10 run-rule win over North Adams #1.

Logan Bell and Landen McDaniel swung the big sticks in the Manchester win, Bell getting three hits and three runs batted in, in addition to scoring four runs, with McDaniel driving home a big seven runs. White, Bailey, Karson Reaves, and Casey Chamblin all had two hits in the victory, with Aaron Lucas and Young scored four runs, while Poole and Bailey both crossed the dish three times.

The home team did their damage early, scoring six times in the first, but the Devils answered with four in the top of the second. Manchester came right back with five in the bottom half, but the resilient North Adams squad bounced back with six in the top of the third to trail by just one, but back came Manchester with seven in their portion of the third and then nine in the fourth to enforce the run rule.

Three Manchester pitchers combined in the victory-Reaves, Lucas, and Bailey, with Reaves getting the win.
