KissacKKKKKKKKKKKKKK leads 'Busters behind seven strong innings
HASTINGS, Neb. —
Trey Kissack shined by striking out 14 of the 21 batters he faced and threw seven innings of no-hit baseball.
As the eighth inning began, Gavin Gragg got the call to take the mound.
Kissack had thrown 88 pitches through seven innings, which is a relatively high number, but not out of the question to continue considering what was still on the table.
Regardless, the Grand Island, Neb. native moves to 2-0 this year and now boasts an ERA of 1.63 in 11.0 innings of work.
Breyden Eckhout made a big impression in his second game with the Sodbusters, going 4 of 4 with a couple of runs, a double and boosted his batting average to .625.
Hitting from the eight hole, Austin Elder was 3 of 4 with a couple of RBI in his first game at Duncan Field this summer. Through one game, he's got an OPS of 1.500 thanks to a .750 on-base percentage and .750 slugging.
The Sodbusters are 5-6 and can take three straight from the Spearfish Sasquatch with a win on Wednesday. First pitch scheduled for 6:35 p.m. CT.
