Excerpt from the Register-Mail:
In his seventh at-bat of Sundayâ€™s doubleheader, Joey Graeff still didnâ€™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.
â€œI got two strikes and I just tried to shorten up and put it in play,â€ Graeff said. â€œHe threw me one inside and I just got the bat on it and it fell for me.â€
Graeffâ€™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.
