Playing for the series win!
Top of the 1st
Knight gives up 1 H, gets 2Ks. Dores get 1 stolen bag. Strands 1.
First licks for the Hogs coming up
Vandy pitcher, Kyle Wright is big time! We will have a work cut out for us tonight.
Wright strikes out the side. He has filthy stuff. Going to the 2nd.
Knight gets another K, gives up a walk. Dores leave a man stranded.
Going to the bottom 2nd
Wright strikes out the first 2 batters of the second, first 5 batters faced. Hogs go down in order. This guy is showing why he is a top 3 pick in the upcoming draft.
Top of the 3rd
Dores gets 2 hits on a bunt single and a blooper to left. Knight handles it with 2 more Ks! 2 left on base.
Going to bottom 3rd
Grosser DHing get a walk on a 12 pitch at bat, fouling off 7 pitches… nice work senior!!!
Hogs get a lead off walk, but does nothing with it. Still looking for a hit off Wright. We did get him his pitch count up over 50 in the inning. That’s about all we got so far.
Top of the 4th coming up
Knight gives up a lead off walk. Runner advances to 2nd on a passed ball. He pitches well after, and Shaddy makes a great play to leave the runner on 3rd.
Bottom 4th coming up.
Hogs go down in order in the bottom 4th.
Starting to get good contact but no hits through 4.
Top 5th up
Pitching duel thru 4
Knight= K 5, BB 2, H 3
Wright= K 6, BB 1, H 0
And then Knight gives up a solo shot to Toffey. Yikes
Knight gives up a solo home run and then a walk. But he works his way thru the inning. Pitch count is close to 90.
Bottom 5th coming up
Wright gets 2 more Ks and set the Hogs down in order again. 5 innings, no hits for the Hogs.
6th cranking up.
Knight gives up 2 hits to the first 2 batters and is done for the day.
Knight goes 5 innings
Chadwick comes in and faces 1 batter. He fields the bunt and throws out the lead runner at 3rd. Great play by Gates to grab the wide throw. 2 on 1st and 2nd, 1 out.
Murphy on the mound.
Murphy gets a K and a fly out to end the inning. Vandy leaves 2 more on. Headed to the bottom of the 6th. Need to make some hay!
Finally!!! Biggers with a base hit. 1 on 1 out
Hogs get 1 hit, leaves him stranded. Wright up to 94 pitches. Getting late.
Top of the 7th coming up
