Greyhounds get no-hit in Game 1 playoff loss to Edinburg

SAN BENITO — Aside from one bad inning, the San Benito Greyhounds were defensively prepared for the Edinburg Bobcats.

With Edinburg pitcher John Gonzales on the mound, however, it wouldn’t matter.

The San Benito lineup just couldn’t figure Gonzales out, leading to a 14 strikeout no-hitter and a 5-1 Edinburg victory in Game 1 of their best-of-three bi-district series Friday night in San Benito.

“I saw that San Benito was looking for the off-speed so I just tried to work the fast ball more than anything,” Gonzales said. “I just tried to overpower them with my fast ball.”

In addition to 14 Ks, Gonzalez walked four batters on the night for Edinburg.
