The Plano Knights could muster only one hit against the SF Rose Diablos and dropped a 7-0 to decision to the fiery devils at Carpenter Field on Saturday afternoon. Josh "The Beast" Kallail took the loss on the mound for the Blue & Orange, working a complete game on the hill. The visiting Knights went in order in the top of the first, as the Diablos starter brought the heat. Kallail responded, posting a scoreless inning of his own in the bottom half, after working around a leadoff walk and a stolen base. Two ground outs and a pop up sent the Knights down in succession in the top of the second, and the Diablos took a 1-0 lead on an unearned run in the home half of the inning. A leadoff single followed by an errant throw from the shortstop put runner at the corners with nobody out. A second error plated the first run, when catcher Jeff "The Sultan" Alton's throw to nab a base stealer at second base sailed into center field. The runner advanced to third base on the miscue, but Kallail stiffened, with two strikeouts and a ground out to shortstop to leave the runner stranded at third base. The Knights got a leadoff walk from Tanner "Keebler" Elfenbein to start the third, but consecutive strikeouts and a ground ball to the second baseman left him on the island. Kallail found a groove in the bottom, and retired the Diablos in succession on three fly balls. The ageless wonder, Michael "Deuce" Kubik singled, with one out in the top of the Knights 4th, to break up the no-hitter. Kubik's spectacular hitting this season has been a constant ray of sunshine for the Knights despite their losing record. Two infield pop outs ended the uprising, and the Diablos capitalized, adding another run in the bottom of the inning. A double, a fielding error and a RBI single did the damage, but Kallail made the defensive play of the day to end the inning. "The Beast" snared a line shot at his ankles for the second out, and then doubled off the runner at third base, with a snap throw to Stacy "The Grill Master" Scott covering the bag. The Knights had a promising start to their 5th, when Brian "Quicksand" Allsbrook drew a base on balls leading off the inning. Allsbrook moved to second on a wild pitch, and then got picked off of second base on a questionable call from the umpire. Elfenbein followed with a walk, but a strikeout and a ground out ended their turn. The Diablos got two singles in the bottom of the inning but Kallail kept the deficit at two runs with a come-backer to the mound to record the final out. Richard "Trip" Somers led off the top of the 6th with a base on balls and moved to second on Alton's ground out to the right side of the infield. Kubik struck out swinging for the second out of the inning, and Somers was caught stealing, after over-running third base. The Diablos finally caught up with Kallail in the bottom of the sixth, batting around and plating five runs in the inning. The game clock expired before the Knights could qualify for their last at bat, and the Knights went down in flames 7-0. The Blue & Orange are back in action Tuesday, September 23, for an 8:30 P.M. start against the Dallas Outlaws.    

Richard "Trip" Somers was the last Knight to reach scoring position in the 6th.
