So far, the 2017 baseball season has been a frustrating one for the Richmond Spartans. However, coach Brandon Quick believed his team was about to break through. One day after dropping an 8-2 road contest to Oak Grove, the Spartans returned home and chalked up their first MRVC East victory with an 8-6 decision over Knob Noster.
The Spartans erased an early 6-1 deficit against the visiting Panthers at Southview Tuesday as Richmond improved to 1-2 in league play and 2-7 overall, while dropping Knob Noster to 2-2 in the MRVC East and 9-4 overall.
Quick said he was glad to see something good happen to a young team that has been working hard to improve.
“It was just the thing we needed,” he said. “Knob Noster is a good ball team – one of the top two teams in the conference. They hit the ball well today. We went out and beat a good ball team today and came from behind to do it.”
