The Meridian boys’ baseball team continued its hot start to the 2023 season this week by winning three games in four days to win the Grant & Danny Spring Showcase tournament, sponsored by 106.7 The Fan’s popular radio show. They defeated Potomac, Annandale, and Thomas Jefferson, all by ten runs, and now sit at 7-1 for the season with the lone loss coming against Wakefield on March 27th.
The Mustangs beat Potomac 14-4 on Saturday, April 1st, their only home game of the tournament. Grant Greiner’s 5 RBI led the way, and then as they traveled to Annandale on Monday, Greiner — who pitched a perfect game earlier in the year — did the heavy lifting on the mound with a no-hitter in a 10-0 victory. Then on Tuesday, Meridian played Thomas Jefferson in Dumfries and won 11-1, on the back of Zander Greene’s 3 hits.
Greiner was named tournament MVP while Greene, along with Josh Wattles, Mason Duval, and Alessio Azimipour were all named to the all-tournament team. The Mustangs will now get to enjoy their spring break, and will be back on the field on April 13th when they visit Washington-Liberty.
