Grayson’s magical run ends

(Continued)

July 10, 2013 —

Morehead took the lead for good in the bottom frame scoring six runs on a homerun, two base hits and an error. Morehead would take control in the bottom of the fourth on a two-run homerun by Jacob Smith.

Trey Scott had seen enough. With the bases loaded in the fifth inning, he told the coaches he wanted to hit and he responded with the extra base hit to score Matthew Holmes, Alex Harris and Shelton to bring them within two runs.

“The triple he hit was big,” Scott said. “Cleared the bases and that’s the kind of kids we have. …we just came up short but we have nothing to hang our heads about. We just gave up the long ball too much.”

Morehead provided the final blow on two homeruns in the bottom of the fifth.

“They beat us two games …but they know who we are,” Scott said. “Our kids will stay together and keep working hard. They have a lot of potential.”

Grayson tried to rally in the sixth but left two runners on base to end the game. But Scott was proud that his team made Morehead earn the championship.

“Give Morehead a lot of credit,” Scott said. “They have a fine team and they played a heck of game.”
