Greyhounds are Rolling
Chelsea Tilton
Dixie varsity boys baseball team had a very busy but prosperous week, playing seven games in the past week but walking away winners from almost every single game. The start of the week was slightly disappointing. Dixie faced Tri-County North at North, the grey hounds lost to the panthers by one point in the bottom of the seventh. The final score was North with five and Dixie with four. The pitcher Ryan Hayes went three for four, with two doubles, and 3RBI's. However, Hayes suffered his second pitching loss of the season.
The very next day the, Tuesday, the boys hosted their first home game, facing Troy Christian; they also gained their first W for the season. This time around the greyhounds dominated the ball field, with a final score of fourteen to Troy Christian’s six. The grey hounds started off strong with 8 runs in the first inning and four more in the second. The games hi-lights were Ethan Hayes who had two home runs and six RBI's, Ryan Hayes had a home run and five RBI's, and Aaron Worley picked up his first pitching victory of the season.
Wednesday saw the grey hound boys at Waynesville playing an exhausting ten ending game. It was a close game as Waynesville came out with a run in the first ending. Neither would score again until the fourth ending, when both scored a run. Dixie then tied it up in the sixth ending, the game would remained tied until the tenth ending when Dixie scored the winning run. The stand out players in this game was again, Ryan Hayes whom picked up his second home run of the season and pitched 9 strong innings. Aaron Worley, who came on in relief to pick up his second victory of the season, Luke Bowling, who doubled in the bottom of the ten and Mike Hall who luckily knocked him in with a game winning single ending the never ending game.
Without a break the team played its fourth game in a row on Thursday, hosting a game against Valley View in which, they pulled yet another victory. The first two ending of this game were rather uneventful offensively as neither teams started getting runs until the third inning. In the third inning both teams were tied three to three, the fourth inning the Valley View Vikings did not score and the grey hounds, however, got another three runs. The fifth inning the tables turned as the Viking held the grey hounds from scoring any runs. The sixth inning the grey hounds scored six runs while the Vikings scored zero. The seventh inning only one point was scored by the Vikings with a final score of six Valley View and twelve Dixie. Garrett Moore pitched for five strong innings, picking up his first pitching victory. Ryan Hayes was three for three with three RBI's, and Ethan Hayes doubled and drove in two.
Without missing a beat the team played Friday. The grey hounds traveled to Northridge and won the fourth game in a row, with a run rule after the fifth inning. The final score was three Northridge to Dixie’s twenty three. Wes Smith picked up his first pitching victory of the season. the stand out players of the game were Ryan Hayes, whom hit home run number three and four in the victory and added seven RBI's Garrett Moore doubled and drove in three runs.
Saturday was a double header; the boys played Arcanum scoring yet another win. The game started slowly offensively as neither team scored a run until the fourth ending. Arcanum scored two runs and Dixie scored one run at the end of the fifth ending. Dixie prevented Arcanum from scoring the rest of the game with a total score of four runs Dixie and two runs Arcanum.
Coach Dave had this to say about the second game, “In the second game we came out swinging and took control and coasted to a ten to three victory”. Ryan Hayes hit home run number five and added three RBI's, Luke Bowling was two for two with two doubles and 2 RBI's. The grey hounds are strutting away this week with a six game winning streak and a season record of 6-2 so far for the season.
