Greyhounds get “A” ball sweep over Peebles 2

Manchester’s Mason Applegate slides safely into home plate under the tag of Peebles pitcher Aaron Maddy during “A” league baseball action from June 23. Applegate was scoring from third on a wild pitch in the first game of a double header that the Hounds won 3-2.

Manchester outfielder Kaige Cox had a big hit in the second game of the Tuesday night doubleheader, singling in two runs in the second inning to tie the game at 3 and the Greyhound eventually went on to a 6-3 win over Peebles 2.

Peebles right hander Brennan Sims follows through on his delivery to the plate during “A” league action from June 23. Sims was the losing pitcher in the second game of a doubleheader, giving up six runs in two plus innings of work.

The skies looked very threatening as game time approached but the clouds disappeared and the sun appeared and it turned out to be perfect June 23 night for baseball in Manchester as the “A” league Greyhounds played host to Peebles 2, in the first meeting of the summer between the two squads.

With all the teams still scrambling to make up games lost to inclement weather, the Hounds and Indians agreed to make it a doubleheader evening with the two teams playing a pair of five inning games. It turned out to be a profitable night for the Greyhounds who won two tough games from the Indians, coming from behind in game one to win 3-2 and doing the same in game two to pull out a 6-3 victory and improve their record to 6-1.

The story of the night was the pitching of the Greyhounds as their hurlers gave up just a combined three hits in the two games and righty Trey Meade had the unique distinction of getting a save in relief in game one , then a win in relief in game two. The Manchester offense got big hits on the night from Mason Applegate, Kaige Cox, and Cole Meade in pulling out two crucial comeback wins.

The Hounds struck first in game one, getting a run in the second inning when Applegate reached on an error and eventually scored on a wild pitch by Peebles starter Aaron Maddy. That lead was short-lived as the Indians got to Manchester starter Kaulen Cox in the top of the third for a pair of scores. Noah Kreml was hit by a pitch to lead off the frame and Austin Fuentes followed with a base hit that moved Kreml to third, where he scored on a ground out off the bat of left fielder Jack Behr. Fuentes went to third on that same ground ball and then stole home to give the visitors a 2-1 advantage.

The Hounds tied the game in the bottom of the third with some daring base running by lead off hitter Rickey DeAtley. DeAtley singled with two outs and went to second on an error. From there, DeAtley took off for third and came around to score when the throw to third from Maddy went awry.

In the bottom of the fourth, Manchester took the lead when Trey Meade drew a one-out walk, went to second on a wild pitch and came home on a base hit by Applegate that made it 3-2 Hounds.

In the top of the fifth, Cox ran into trouble, walking Feuntes and Maddy to put two on with no out. Trey Meade came on in relief and was up to the task, striking out the next three batters to earn the save as the Greyhounds picked up the one-run win.

Cox was the winning pitcher, going four innings, giving up just one hit and striking out six. Maddy took the loss, also pitching four innings, giving up just one earned run. Offense was at a minimum as the two squads combined for just four hits.

Game two began with right hander Cole Meade on the mound for the Greyhounds and he didn’t survive the first inning due to a lack of command and some shoddy defense. For Peebles, Fuentes led off the game with a base hit, followed by a walk to Brennan Sims. Both of those runners came home when a ground ball from Stone was booted by shortstop Kaulen Cox. Stone came home on a throwing error by catcher Nick Hoskins to give the Indians a 3-0 lead. With just one out in the inning, Meade was replaced by his brother Trey on the mound and from that point on, it was lights out. Meade struck out Ridge Cluxton and Noah Kreml to finish out the first and proceeded to whiff 10 of the 13 hitters he faced in the game.

The Hounds did not score off of Peebles starter Sims in the bottom of the first but in the bottom of the second, they tied the contest, putting up a three spot. Hoskins led off with a single to center, stole second and then was balked to third. Hoskins was then erased at the plate when Applegate grounded to third. Applegate stole second and went to third on a fly out to right by Jalen James. A double to left by Kaulen Cox brought Applegate across and Jase Thatcher was hit by a pitch.

That brought Kaige Cox to the plate and after fouling off a number of two strike pitches, Cox lined a base hit to right that drove home two and tied the game at three apiece.

After Meade struck out the side in the top of the third, the Hounds grabbed the lead in their half. With Sims still on the hill, DeAtley and Carpenter both drew walks to begin the inning and both came home on a base hit to left by Cole Meade. Meade swiped second and third and scored on a two-bagger to right center by his brother Trey that made it 6-3 and drove Sims from the game. Austin Mudhenk came on in relief and got the next three hitters to stave off any further damage.

Meade allowed his only hit of the game, a base hit by Kreml in the top of the fourth, but fanned the next two to preserve the three-run advantage. The Hounds went down in order in the bottom of the fourth with Lucas Rayburn on to pitch for Peebles and at that point, darkness set in and the game was called with the Hounds on top 6-3, which was declared the final score.

After earning the save in the first game, Trey Meade was overpowering in picking up the win in the second game, striking out 10 over 3 2/3 innings of work. Brother Cole had a pair of hits plus a pair of RBI’s as the Hounds picked up their sixth win in seven outings.
