The long, winding journey of Grady Miller

Grady Miller should be flying high. He seemingly has it all — a scholarship for baseball, a large sum of friends, and a loving family. However, that’s only from the outside looking in. The route to gaining his scholarship has come with bumps and winds in the road, and his personal life seems to be crumbling.

WINTHROP — With a runner on in the top of the seventh, Madison White stepped up to the dish with a chance to provide the Nannies some much needed extra-inning heroics.

Starting pitcher Aubrey Miller stayed in the circle for the bottom of the seventh and finished out a critical 6-4 road win for the Nannies.

Prep focus: Cashmere baseball thumps Cascade

PESHASTIN — A short downpour dampened the momentum that the Cascade baseball team had gained in the first two innings of its game against Cashmere on Thursday at the Peshastin-Dryden Sports Complex. Against a top-notch starting pitcher, the host Kodiaks started the game well at the plate. Then, the rain started, and while it only lasted for a few minutes, it was just enough to throw off Cascade’s rhythm.
