(Perryville) Perryville Pirates sophomore Grant Smith is the Applebee’s of Farmington Athlete of the Week.
Smith got his 2022 baseball season off to a flying start.
In leading Perryville to season-opening wins over Scott City and Doniphan, Smith finished with 7 hits in 8 at-bats, including a triple, 2 runs scored, 4 runs batted in and 3 stolen bases.
Smith also got the pitching victory against Scott City, allowing just one hit and one unearned run in 5 2/3 innings and striking out 9 batters.
