Knights down Red Raiders 9-3
Michael Pringle's single in the second inning gave the Knights a 1-0 lead. Senior leftfielder Forrest Hurlbut broke open a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning with a two-run double to right field and then scored on a double steal to make the score 4-1. Two runs by the Red Raiders in the fourth cut the lead to 4-3 but a double by Ben Swisher and single by Robbie Zielinski put the Knights up 5-3 in the fifth. Another double steal scored Zielinski and made the score 6-3.
Hits by Swisher and Hurlbut along with numerous Fairport miscues allowed Sutherland to tack on three more runs in the seventh and put the Red Raiders away for good.
Hurlbut went 2 for 4 with 3 RBIs and Swisher went 2 for 3 with 2 runs scored to lead the offense.
The Knights play Washington Lee tomorrow at 3 pm.
