The Knights battled for 10 innings, didn't give up, and came out on top in a marathon of a game. A three run third inning with RBIs by Kyle Ellestad, Dax Doernemann, and Parker Stine. Gavin Gross, Nico DiSanto, and Blake Keller added multiple hits for the Knights, with Keller leading with 4 hits and 4 stolen bases. According to former youth baseball mom, and OTS reporter Heather Gray, "I haven't seen a performance like Blake Keller's today since 2008 when the Linglestown Juggernauts Twilight hitters would abuse pitchers just like Blake did today. That 2008 team was loaded top to bottom, just like these Knights!" Gavin Gross earned the W on the mound throwing 2.2 innings and only allowing 1 hit.With the win, the Knights stay alive in the Field of Screams tournament.

         The Knights battled back in the semi-final game of the Future Stars Fall Slugfest but ended up coming up short, 6-4. After falling behind 5-0 early, a big 4th inning saw them plate 4 runs and had Kingston Maddox as the tying run at third base. Maddox was there after executing a beautiful hit and run with shortstop Drew Grejda  (2-2) on first base. Aaron Neidig had a 2 RBI single during the big inning too.  Derrick Price and Eli Peterson kept things close on the mound all game and Price was the first Knight hurler to pick off a baserunner with a dirty move in the 3rd! Also collecting hits for the Knights were Aaron Peterson, Reece Hnatishion, and Lucas Smith. It was a great tournament for the Knights who are now 2-2 on the year and will be back in action at the end of the month.

         It was a chance for revenge on Sunday morning for the Knights as they took on Baseball U as the 5th seed in bracket play. Kayden Gelbaugh and Colby Rissinger were lights out on the mound and the Knights bats were hot all game. Aaron Peterson and Derrick Price started the scoring when they both scored on a passed ball in the first. In the second, the Knights would add 9 runs to their total to take an 11-0 lead.  Aaron Neidig, Brady Zellers, Gelbaugh and Peterson all collected hits for the Knights. In the bottom of the second, there were one or two questionable calls by the umpire that the Knights had to work past. They did just that to earn a spot in the semi-finals and move to 2-1 in the tournament.

         In game 2 of pool play, the Knights fell behind early as a result of a few miscues but were able to turn things around and put Baseball U on their heels late in the game. With their never give up attitude, they built a lot of momentum heading in to bracket play. The game was full of highlights for the Knights. Derrick Price and Kayden Gelbaugh both missed grand slams by a total of less than 12 inches! Price and Santino Pellegrini turned a beautiful 5-4-3 double play and rightfielder Brady Zellers made a nice sliding catch to start the game. Lucas Smith and Aaron Peterson stayed hot at the plate with a couple hits each. The Knights are now 1-1 on the day heading into Sunday.
