KNIGHTS WITH COMEBACK WIN TO OPEN THE 2021 SEASON

The 2021 NDHS season managed to get underway Saturday, March 20, as the masked Knights battled for a 4-3 away win over J Serra. Despite out-hitting the Lions 9 to 4, the Knights trailed until the 6th inning when, after tying it, they went ahead on an errant attempted pick-off at 2nd base (which allowed the go-ahead to score from 3rd). 

Nicholas Rynn led the offense with 2 hits, one of them an RBI (scoring the tying run), while James Markey also had 2 hits, including a bunt single to load the bases & the team's only extra-base hit, a double. Four different Knights scored a run. 

Angelo Aleman arguably made the Knights defensive play of the game, a diving stab at the 3rd base foul line finished with the put out at first.

Jack Snyder started for the Knights. After a rough first inning, where he allowed 2 runs,  he settled in for a total of 3 runs after 3 complete, striking out 3, while walking 4.  Christian Miranda was sharp in middle relief to eventually notch the W, allowing just one hit while his team went ahead to stay. Jonathan Peric then shut it down in the final 2 innings, no runs, 1 hit, 3 K's & 1 BB. 

Meanwhile, Lion starter David Horn (8 hits, 4 runs, 1BB) struck out 9 Knights while tossing over 100 pitches in 5.2 innings to record the loss.
