The Knights calmed the forces of nature on Wednesday evening, pitting their own quiet storm, against the raging waters of the DFW Hurricanes. Stacy "The Grill Master" Scott rowed his way steadily through the Green & Orange deluge, navigating the chop for a complete game victory. The Knights veteran starter allowed eight hits over the distance, posting two walks and two strike outs along the way. The one earned run he surrendered in the first inning was the only plating the Hurricanes could muster against the Knights own natural phenomenon. Brad "Thunderbolt" Leveridge singled to leadff the game for the Blue & Orange and scored later in the inning on an error. The home team matched the tally with three singles in the bottom half, before Scott used consecutive ground balls to retire the side. Brett "The Summit" Brummitt singled with two outs in the Knight second, but a strikeout left him stranded. Scott worked around a one out walk, with a swinging strike three to end the Hurricanes half. Hunter "Skywalker" Thomas lashed a liner to right field that was muffed by the defender, and took second base, when the ball popped out of his glove. A ground out to first base created a disturbance in the Force, as the Dark Side finished the Knight 3rd. The Hurricanes threatened in the bottom of the inning, when a two out walk and an infield error put a runner in scoring position. "The Grill Master" turned up the heat and got a fly ball to Tim "Braveheart" Wallace in left field, for the third out. Haley "The Comet" Hougen hustled down the line for an infield single with two outs in the top of the fourth, but a ground out closed the book. Scott matched the zero in the bottom, as the Knight infield flashed some fancy leather. Three ground balls in the inning demonstrated extensive defensive coverage and a couple of nice picks by his first baseman aided the cause. Consecutive walks by Josh "Wander Boy" Leveridge and Scott "Freight Train" McCain, leading off the fifth, eventually scored in the inning, when Scott "Mr. Clean" Bale and Mike "Deuce" Kubik both reached on infield errors. Kubik earned a RBI for his contribution and the visiting Knights opened up a 3-1 advantage. The Canes got two singles from the first two batters in their turn, but two infield pop ups and a come-backer to the mound sent them all back to the dugout scoreless. Paul "Moneyball" Garcia ripped the cover off the ball with a one out laser to left field and later advanced on a passed ball. Jacob "The Missile" DeLaCruz singled in Garcia with a base knock of his own, behind his team mate. The Knights were unable to do further damage, and their starter put up another goose egg in the bottom. Leveridge and McCain got matching singles to start the seventh, but the Knights were unable to bring them home. Scott sealed the deal in the Hurricanes last chance, when two ground balls and a strikeout silenced the storm with a cool gentle breeze. The Knights take on the North Dallas Bulls in the regular season finally, Sunday, Oct 22, in a 6:30 P.M. start on Graham Field at Prestonwood Christian Academy

The Wanderer
Josh "Wander Boy" Leveridge walked and scored the Knights 2nd run in the 5th.
