Hurricane 8, Kanab 7 3/24/2018

Talk about a monster rally … the Tigers trailed 7-1 heading into the bottom of the seventh against the visiting Cowboys. But the final three outs proved too elusive for Kanab.

Jeremiah Johnson walked to lead off the parade for Hurricane. As it turns out, the Tigers would do a lot of walking in the seventh. Austin Wright walked next, then Isaac Blair singled a run home to make it 7-2. Brian Long and Rylee Kent then walked to force in a run and make it 7-3.

Cayden Street took one for the team and that made it 7-4, and Kage Akipoleki’s walk brought in another run to make it 7-5. With still no one out, Brock Starley finally saw a strike and he thrashed it into left field for a two-run, game-tying single. Two batters later, Johnson ended the game with a safety squeeze bunt that brought home pinch runner Zeb Hirschi.

Starley led the Tigers with two hits and three RBIs and Long also rapped two hits. Reliever Michael Martinez got the win for Hurricane, which improves to 5-6 on the year with the win. Hurricane has a region bye next week and will take on North Sevier Thursday and go to Richfield on Friday.
