+++++What they were saying:Game-winning run scored by Nile Harris:“This playoff win means everything”….”I had to play it safe all on the way on advancing to third and then scoring the game-winning run”…A couple of walks and a Sacrifice had helped Nile Harris reach third base….He had been thrown out earlier in the game trying to advance from second to third….Harris also said, “This is a great group of guys here at Grimsley to go to go to bat with, we just have to stay focused.”….“For us to being on to Round Two of the Playoffs, it just means The World”….As the game kept going on for more innings, all the way to the 13th, Nile Harris said he kept thinking, “We have to end this somehow”…..
Grimsley winning pitcher Gus Hughes said, “Our starting pitcher C.J. Neese did an outstanding job, I just had to come in and keep it like it was and not let Page score”….On if he got stronger as the game went on, Hughes said, “I got more under control and was able to do my job and was to be able to help Grimsley get the win on the mound, I wasn’t providing much help at the plate”….On if he could go again on Saturday, Hughes said, “No, I threw 64 pitches tonight and with two days rest, I don’t think I can pitch again on Friday or Saturday”… On beating Page, Hughes said, “This is huge/very big, this is the first time we have defeated Page twice in the same season in a long time, and it feels great.”

Grimsley coach Gary Flynn said he was very proud of his team…Coach Flynn said, “We will go with Jake Bloss in the starting role at South Caldwell”, Jake is like our #2 starter and we use Gus Hughes more like a reliever.”….Coach Flynn said, “After a win like we had tonight, the adrenaline is flowing and we need to use this win to push us hard into Round Two at South Caldwell.”….Coach also agreed that, “This was one of the biggest wins in recent Grimsley baseball history”…..

*****Quite a game with Page at Grimsley tonight with a very large crowd on hand, and I’m sure the local Grimsley and Page fans will be talking about this game and remembering this one, for a LONG time to come….*****
