Errors costly to Knights
CRYSTAL LAKE — Errors proved costly in Graettinger/Terril’s first game of the year.
The Knights trailed just 5-4 with two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning.
According to coach Jared Cecil, his players failed to catch an infield pop-up for the third out. That gave North Iowa another chance and they scored five runs to put the game away 10-4.
“As with all games, it’s a game of details,” said Cecil. “We didn’t execute defensively like we needed to.”
The Knights did have a respectable outing from pitcher Taylor Harris, who struck out 11 batters and walked three while giving up eight hits.
However, G/T only had six hits.
Cody Dyhrkopp was 2-2 with a double and a walk, Tayler Leiting was 2-3 with a triple and two RBIs, Harris was 1-2 and Drew Skattebo was 1-3.
“Offensively, we’ve got to find some consistency,” said Cecil. “But work working hard and looking to improve.”
The Knights host Corwith-Wesley-Luverne Wednesday in a doubleheader.
