Gray Rallies To Take GameThree 11-3

Sept. 30, 2004

PULLMAN, Wash. - The Gray Team put up 10 runs in the first three innings and cruised to an 11-3 victory in the third game of the Crimson-Gray World Series.

Gray (1-2) got off to a hot start by scoring three runs in the top of the first thanks to a three-run blast by freshman Jimmy Murphy. The rally continued into the second and third innings as Gray put up seven more runs highlighted by Grant Alexander's homerun over the fence in left-center field. Adrian Valdez finished the game with three doubles and four RBI's.

Brett Sommer had a solid outing scattering six hits and allowing two runs over four innings of work.

'Sommer located his fastball on both sides of the plate which made his other pitches more effective,' Head Coach Don Marbut said.

Crimson's Zack Kosturos hit two doubles and Dane Renkert had another stellar performance in relief, but it was not enough to overcome the offensive surge by the Gray team.

The series will continue with Game Four starting at 6:30 on Thursday, September 30, 2004.
