Excerpt from the Register-Mail:
In his seventh at-bat of Sunday’s doubleheader, Joey Graeff still didn’t have a hit.
Now here he was in the bottom of the eighth, game tied, go-ahead runner on second. The Knox College left fielder wanted to poke the ball to the opposite field, but then he fell behind in the count.
“I got two strikes and I just tried to shorten up and put it in play,” Graeff said. “He threw me one inside and I just got the bat on it and it fell for me.”
Graeff’s RBI single provided the winning run in game two as Knox baseball swept Monmouth 3-2 and 5-4 on Sunday.
The Prairie Fire improved to 6-19 overall and 3-3 in the Midwest Conference. The Fighting Scots fell to 5-17 and 4-4 in the MWC.
