continued The efforts by Varsanyi, Matt Pierce and Nick Chiseri on the pitcher’s mound did not go unnoticed by Grabek, who said his starters got the job done.
“I knew I had six really good pitchers on the team, and I expected them to do well to keep the scores down,” said Grabek.
Guilderland needed one more strong pitching performance in Monday night’s game against Tri-Valley if it had any hopes of advancing to the championship round.
The Bulldogs were originally scheduled to play Tri-Valley Tuesday night, but the game was pushed ahead one day when rain forced two Sunday games to be moved.
“I’m not happy about it. We should have had an off day before playing Tri-Valley,” said Grabek. “But Tri-Valley has to play a full doubleheader [Monday].”
