Five Tiger errors meant Hurricane starting pitcher Rylee Kent was tagged with five unearned runs in the game. It was still a tight game at 5-4 going into the fourth inning, but the Rams scored four more times and Hurricane’s offense dried up.

No Tiger had more than one hit in the contest, though Brian Long singled and walked twice. Austin Wright had two RBIs.

In the later game, Hurricane trailed 9-2 after two innings and 11-6 after four. But the Tigers rallied to tie the game at 11-11 with five runs in the top of the fifth. Both teams scored twice in the sixth to make it 13-13. The Tigers then plated eight runs in the top of the seventh to gain the win.

Wright had an RBI double and Brock Starley hit a two-run triple in the big rally. Rylee Kent finished the game with threes wild – hits, runs and RBIs – and four Tigers had two hits each (Long, Wright, Kage Akipoleki and Isaac Blair).

The Tigers rapped out 15 hits and drew eight walks in the game. Green Canyon also committed eight errors.

Hurricane will play again Saturday with the time/opponent yet to be determined.
