Neah Kah Nie Baseball hosted Gaston today. The game proved too much for the Greyhounds. Neah Kah Nie continued the beating of Gaston that Nestucca Baseball started last Thursday.
The Pirates got on the board early, scoring 6 runs in the 1st inning. They scored 3 more by the 3rd inning. The game ended in a shut out for the Pirates: 10-0, with the game being completed at the end of the 5th inning due to league mercy rule.*
The win brings Neah Kah Nie their first league win. They are 1-3 in league play with an overall record of 9-7.
Neah Kah Nie will travel on Friday for a double header, and rematch, against Gaston in Gaston. Games will be played at 3pm and 4:30pm.
*League Mercy Rule (10 Run Rule) allows a game to be called complete in the 5th or 6th inning if a team is up by 10 or more runs. The completion of the 5th inning is considered an official game, hence the cut off.
Neah Kah Nie baseball opened league play Wednesday against Knappa.
A rough few innings early in the game saw Knappa score 9 runs, with Neah Kah Nie answering with only 2 in return. Knappa took the game 9-2.
Neah Kah Nie will travel to Knappa on the 20th for a double header.
