GreyWolves close out series with 5-4 victory
West Coast League
After a rough start to the second half of league play, it looks like the GreyWolves are back on track.
GreyWolves starting pitcher Alex Roth threw six innings of shutout baseball on Tuesday night as Gresham pulled of the series sweep against Walla Walla, winning the final game 5-4.
With the victory, Gresham has now tied their longest win streak of the season at three games.
"It just feels good to win again...Besides one inning tonight, we dominated this game for the most part," GreyWolves head coach Justin Barchus said. "We got out to a good lead and had some really quality at-bats."
Roth led the way on the mound for the Gresham in his best start of the summer, striking out eight and only walking two in his first win as a member of the GreyWolves.
"Coach (Barchus) has been on us about throwing strikes and not giving up free bases. If you do those things as a pitcher, you're going to help yourself out. I just made (Walla Walla) put it in play and my defense did a great job of backing me up," Roth said.
