Just before this, the Cobras faced Cato-Meridian, a game that turned on timely hits and strong pitching as Grimes beat the Blue Devils 3-1.
An early 1-0 lead from Schad’s RBI single disappeared when Cato scored in the top of the third. From that point on, though, Steinberg and Ryan Gosson shut the Blue Devils down, Steinberg going four innings before Gosson recorded three innings of no-hit relief, the pair getting seven strikeouts.
Still, it took the Cobras poking across two runs in the bottom of the fourth to grab the lead for good as Chapman and Matt Needham drove in those runs. Needham and Joe Arrigo led Grimes with two hits apiece.
Grimes has another high-profile game Friday night when it goes to NBT Bank Stadium to face Bishop Ludden at 7 p.m.
