Canyon View 5, Hurricane 3 - 4/24/2018

Trace Harden had a big day. The senior hurled a complete game and also ripped a triple as the Falcons picked up their first region win.

Almost all the scoring came in the fourth inning as the Tigers plated two in the top half and Canyon View countered with five in the bottom half.

Hurricane had its first lead in quite some time in the top of the fourth as Kyle Stevenson grounded home Brock Starley, who had walked. A couple of batters later, Michael Martinez singled home Stevenson to make it 2-0. Harden worked through the trouble by inducing a groundout and a strikeout to end the threat.

In the bottom of the fourth, the first three Falcons reached base on a single, a walk and a safe call on a bunt play. Tristan Graff then singled to left to put Canyon View on the board and make it 2-1. A balk by Hurricane brought home Tanner Hardin and made it 2-2, followed by a sacrifice fly from Joey Lambeth that brought home Madsen Rigby and made it 3-2. Another sac fly, this time by Trevor Farrow, scored Graff and made it 4-2. Harden then ripped a triple and scored moments later on another balk to make it 5-2.

The Tigers cut it to 5-3 in the top of the sixth on another RBI hit by Martinez, but Harden struck out the side in the seventh to close out the game.

Harden ended up allowing six hits and three runs in the game, striking out 11 while walking just one. Tanner Hardin had two hits to lead the way for CV, which improves to 6-13 overall and 1-8 in region play. Hurricane, 7-13 and 0-9, will host Canyon View Friday night at Tiger Field.
