Will Bannister, Reed baseball
Considering the circumstances, the Reed junior delivered one of the better pitching performances of the season on Thursday afternoon. Bannister tamed an explosive Galena offense at the Grizzlies’ yard, allowing four runs on eight hits in a complete-game victory. The win not only snapped a seven-game losing streak, but it set the table for the Raiders’ 10-0 home win over the Grizzlies on Saturday that put them squarely back in the playoff hunt.
