Majors sport perfect 6-0 mark

by nathan oster

Two weeks into the season and the Greybull Majors have yet to taste defeat.

Managed by Nolan Tracy, the team sported a perfect 6-0 record after a 7-0 drubbing of Worland Thursday night at the Art Schutte Athletic Complex.

Greybull plated five runs in the first and two more in the third in support of Brock Hill, who went the distance on the mound, surrendering just a single hit in five innings.

Morgan Dowling scored twice and had two runs batted in to lead the offense.  Max Mills, Dade Greene and Hill also knocked in runs for the winners.

The win came on the heels of five other triumphs for the team.

“It’s been a great start to the season,” said Tracy. “We have several returning 12 year olds and the 11 year olds played for me on the Minors team.

“We have experienced, knowledgeable players which helps in early season games.”

So does good pitching — and Greybull has been getting that from the foursome of Alex Schlattmann, Ross Padilla, Hill and Dowling.

“Plus the boys have batted really well and played tough defense,” Tracy said.

The team’s win streak included a 14-3 thumping of the Worland A’s, a 12-0 rout of the Worland Giants, a 10-5 win over Otto and a sweep of a doubleheader with Thermopolis, by 14-0 and 25-3 scores.

The Majors were scheduled to host Thermopolis on Wednesday, with games at 5:30 and 7 p.m.  The team plays in Otto today (Thursday, June 14), with the first game of the twinbill starting at 5:30 p.m.
