By Stephen R. Farris, Journal Sports

Not to be outdone by the Lady Goats 40-40 offensive production (41 hits, 40 runs) this past weekend, the Goats tally was slightly higher with a total of 43 runs and 44 hits. Matching the Lady Goats four-win weekend, the Goats are off to a 6-0 start to the season. Playing in the Holland baseball tournament Friday and Saturday, Groesbeck knocked off their host twice, beating the Hornets 12-2 and 9-0. The Goats closest game of the tournament was against the Lexington Eagles, winning the game 5-3 and on Saturday morning, they blanked the Florence Buffaloes 17-0. Groesbeck opened play with Holland Friday morning with both teams tied at 1-1 after an inning of play. The Goats turned up the offense in the top of the second scoring five runs to push ahead 6-1.
