Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, March 11, 2015 5C Quincy baseball opens with a win over I.oyalton Greg Knight Sports Editor The Quincy Trojans baseball team steamrolled its way into the 2015 season last week by decimating the Loyalton Grizzlies on a 15-1 final score. It was a game that bodes well for the Trojans going forward -- as six players earned at least two runs in the short, five-inning match and three batters earned double RBIs. The match was tied up at 14 throughout the first inning, with Loyalton drawing first blood on a run by Grizzly freshman Bowdy Griffin. It was the first, last and only run Loyalton would score in the game as the bats and base stealing efforts of the Trojans went white hot starting in the opening moments of the second inning. After an error by Loyalton's first baseman sent Brendan Murray home to even up the score in the first, the trio of Tyler Hartline, Cody Morrison and Lane Lamar managed to get on base and pitcher Toby Buus set the diamond afire with a two-RBI single that put Quincy up 3-1. With Buus and Lamar at first and second, senior Erik Schwartz belted another double RBI single to up the score to 5,1 in favor of the Trojans. An RBI from Brendan Murray sent Schwartz home before the Loyalton mound was able to retire the lineup of Chase McDonald, Matt Beeson and Craig Martynn. The Trojans did not let up in the least in the third inning as their bats got even hotter, putting up seven runs off RBIs from McDonald, Hartline and Morrison, and a double RBI single off Martynn. Already up 13-1, it only took two more runs, from Eric Wolfe, courtesy of a Hartline RBI, and Schwartz off an RB] double by Murray, to seal the deal at 15-1 and give Quincy a 1-0 record on the season. In addition to the heavy hitting, Buus was also outstanding from the mound, earning 10 strikeouts in four innings. He was relieved by Chase McDonald, who pitched the fifth inning and struck out two batters looking. Head coach Randy Kelsch said the win was indicative of hs team applying what they See Quincy, page 6C Tyler Hartline (No. 25) slides into third last week against the Loyalton Grizzlies at home.

Photo by Greg Knight SPORTS DESK. from page lC the "goods" on was none other than the back-and-forth of championship basketball between the teams of young men from Chester High Schoot and Paradise Adventist High School. How would it spin and turn, writhe and twist to get the score a wee bit higher than the other lads? That is what Mr. Mac expected of me to sues out, no less. Walking into the arena, I had just strapped my camera on and adjusted my thick glasses, which made me look older and acted as a natural repellant to the fairer sex when the universe opened up on me the wretched burrito had been spiked. All I could do was snap photos one after another and another and another and another. Full stop. 32 minutes later. Whew. That damnable taco, which now seemed one with my cells, was tripping me out. I had never wanted to see the things I saw that night; fans of the Adventists cheering the home team and booing the team Mr. Mac was paying me to cover.., semi-sweet ladies with blue hair w01ked by as cheerleaders in green called out in cadence, and then there was the action on the court, which seemed a million miles away given my gastric irregularities of that space and time. It was all too much ... I guzzled water and prayed a prayer of tawfiq, though I doubted the prophet heard me or cared for my taste in bloodsport. Knowing the end was near, [ raised my camera in one last depraved attempt to get the perfect photo. And there, through my eyepiece, I saw it all. The pale and dark and red and green and blue personages, vibrating at a trillion trills per second, were all making those faces for the love of the young men who were battling for themselves and their mates. It wasn't about the pretty people, it was about loving a brother. Winning. Avoiding enchiladas before basketball. The game ended with my charges down 66-40 and I was spent. It hadn't necessarily gone the way I had prayed for, : and the raviolis had finally settled to a dull roar where it counted. Mr. Mac would indeed pay me the scrilla he owed me. The drive back up the mountain- seemed lonelier and less vivid ... and just when I thought the extraterrestrials had come, I realized.., the stars were coming out.
