Dixie 18, Hurricane 0 4/3/2018

With Tyson Fisher on the mound (ERA 0.37), the only chance the Tigers had was to keep the score low. It didn’t happen.

The Flyers posted a run in the first, four in the second and 12 in the third to blow the game wide open and clinch the road win.

Fisher allowed one hit in three innings and Boston Miller allowed just two walks in two innings of relief as Dixie romped. The Flyers socked two doubles, two triples and a home run in the game, part of a 13-hit attack. Dixie also drew nine walks and took advantage of two Tiger errors.

The Flyers led 1-0 after one inning as Fisher tripled and scored on a single by Chase Lundin. The lead grew to 5-0 in the top of the second. Wyatt Woodland brought two of those runs home with a double to left field and a Kayler Yates single scored Woodland and made it 4-0. Lundin picked up his second RBI of the game later in the inning to make it 5-0.

With Hurricane still hitless, the game took a turn into blowout-land in the top of the third. Woodland struck again with his second two-run double to make it 7-0 and Hobbs Nyberg followed moments later with a triple down the right field line that scored two more and made it 9-0.

Later in that same inning, Nyberg came up with the bases loaded and two outs and socked a grand slam to straightaway right field. It is his second home run of the year. Reggie Graff had a pinch-hit RBI single in the fourth for the Flyers’ final tally.

Nyberg finished 2 for 4 with two runs scored and six RBIs. Woodland was 2 for 3 with four RBIs, and Yates and Payden Harrah had two hits each. Every Dixie starter scored at least once in the game.

The Flyers improve to 14-2 overall and 3-0 in region play with the win. Hurricane, which got its lone hit in the bottom of the fourth (a single by Brigham Hirschi), drops to 7-7 overall and 0-3 in region play. The two teams meet again Friday night at 7:30 p.m. in St. George.
