Evan Hafley backed up his great pitching performance Friday with the game-winning hit as the Peaster Greyhounds won 4-2 in eight innings at Breckenridge.
Looper Shook led off the eighth inning by getting hit by a pitch and Kelton Shook sacrificed him to second. Hafley then drove Shook home with a double and scored himself on Matthew Grimes' single.
On the mound, Hafley pitched all eight innings. He struck out 14, walked two and scattered four hits.
The victory improved the Greyhounds (14-5-1 overall) to 4-1 in District 7-3A. They are a game behind Brock, to whom their only loss was against, 4-1 at home on March 14.
