Greg Holmes dominated through 6 innings allowing only 3 runs and 4 hits while striking out 10. The seventh inning saw the return of the unfocused, error prone Knights defense. Three Knights errors led to a very nerve racking inning where the Bulldogs were able to plate 4 runs and get the tying run to secondbase. Luckily Mike Urtnowski had one more trick, well make that 2 outs up his sleeve.
* This is the first Knights win over a Division 1 opponent this season!
* The Knights STILL need defensive practice, as well as some individuals needing some HUSTLE!!
* Erstwhile Knights pitcher Jay Harmon, who racked up only 44 strikeouts in 71 2/3 innings over three seasons, has struck out 52 batters in just 23 innings during his wildly successful transfer back to his original stickball roots. He is 4-0 with a 1.22 ERA in 4 starts for the Pier Street Pressure of the Major Stickball League in New York City. He has allowed just 10 hits and 7 walks.
