San Benito holds on for 4-3 win over Harlingen South

SAN BENITO — The San Benito Greyhounds are no strangers to close games this district season, so they were right at home in their latest outing.

After erasing a 3-0 deficit and taking a one-run lead in the bottom of the third inning, San Benito Greyhound relief pitcher Erik Arizpe held the Harlingen Hawks scoreless the next four innings, securing a 4-3 win for the ’Hounds Tuesday night in San Benito.

While Greyhound head coach RamPartida enjoyed the win, the tight games and cold bats early in games has been a too close for comfort.

“Erik came in and did a great job to pick up a win, but looking at that big inning, our kids keep fighting and that’s something we need to keep doing,” Partida said. “I tell the kids not to test the waters to see if it’s hot or if it’s cold, just jump in and have fun—that’s one thing we have to learn at the plate.”

The win evens out the Greyhounds’ district record at 3-3, while South falls to 1-5.
