Kirk struck out five, walked none and was a Graham error away from a perfect game.

Tommy Lovell led Graham with three hits, three RBIs and two runs scored, while Spencer Sheets scored two runs for the G-Men, which scored five runs in the fourth and fifth innings.

Graham (2-1) will host Giles on Monday at 4:30 p.m.
