Dudley Easter Tournament:
Grimsley….Yuri Johnston HR-Grand Slam
DJ Reader HR-Grand Slam
Tournament MVP:DJ Reader freshman from Grimsley with 2 HR’s vs. High Point Andrews and the Grand Slam versus Dudley tonight…..
On a cool, windy evening and a day later than scheduled, Grimsley overwhelmed Dudley in the championship game of the Dudley Easter Tournament. A case of weary pitching and several missing regulars doomed the Panthers early as the Whirlies scored 11 runs in the 2nd inning. Grimsley was led offensively by Kory Shumate’s 4 for 4 night with 4 runs scored and grand slams by Yuri Johnston and DJ Reader. Chris Harrelson also contributed with a 3 for 4 performance and 2 runs scored. Although Dudley hit the ball hard at times, the early deficit would be too much to overcome. Dudley was led by Ray Crawford (3-3, 2 runs, RBI) and Brandon Burkes (1-3, 2B, run, 2 RBIs).
