Grey Sox, Red Sox both winners

Vermillion's two amateur baseball teams both won a game last Wednesday before taking the holiday weekend off away from balls and strikes.

The Grey Sox will next be in action Sunday in a 2 p.m. game at Garretson while the next game for the Red Sox will be against the Grey Sox at Prentis Park next Wednesday following the American Legion regional tournament games.

The Red Sox scored eight runs in the middle innings � three in the fifth and five in the sixth � to dominate the Sioux Falls Saints, 5-4, last week.  Garrett Linhardt picked up the pitching win, and Steve Johnson entered the game in the eighth to finish it off.  Robin Chute had a home run and a double, Tylor Candor two doubles and Johnson two hits.

At the same time the Grey Sox were dominating at Canton, 11-1, for their sixth State Line League win in seven tries.  A five-run sixth inning broke the game open on offense, but Cody Schreiber didn't need nearly that much offensive support.  The Sox hurler, among the 21 outs Canton committed in seven innings of play, got 17 of them all by himself on strikeouts.  He allowed four hits, and Canton didn't score its lone run until the bottom of the final stanza.

Grant Lueders with four singles, Michael Kendall with a pair of singles and Tim Ross with a three-run homer led the Grey Sox offense.
