Mason Wallin, center, runs to first base as teammate Joshua Griego slides across home base to score Monday night at Tucumcari.

After an early rally to tie the game, the Quay County Minor League All-Stars fell 14-8 Monday to the Roosevelt County All-Stars at Tucumcari.

The game was a lot closer than the score showed, said Cole Wallin, Quay County head coach.

The Quay All-Stars were down 4-0 in the bottom of the second with two outs when Joshua Griego connected with a fastball and got on base.

"I just watched the ball and knew I had to get a hit," Griego said.

Griego stole second base and advance to third base on a wild pitch.

Quay All-Star Mason Wallin hit a line drive on a 1-2 count and as he ran to first, Griego beat the throw to home to earn the team their first score.

"I kept thinking, I had to beat the throw," Griego said.

Wallin said he focused on making it to first base.

"I didn't have time to worry about the throw; I just ran," Wallin said.

The Quay All-Stars will play again today in Tucumcari at a time to be determined.
