Canyon View 8, Hurricane 5 - 4/27/2018

The Falcons raced out to a 6-0 lead and then held on for their second win in a row.

Quinn Spevak started the scoring with an RBI single in the top of the first. Josh Macinnis followed with a two-run homer to left field that made it 3-0 before Hurricane had even batted.

The lead grew to 6-0 in the top of the third. Macinnis picked up his third RBI of the game with a one-out single to center field. Parker Holmes followed with a double to left that scored Macinnis and made it 5-0. Two batters later, Colten Shumway singled to chase home Holmes and make it 6-0.

Falcons starting pitcher Joey Lambeth kept the Tigers off the scoreboard until the fourth. But a Canyon View error opened the door for a two-run single by Michael Martinez that made it 6-2. A Brian Long RBI hit made it 6-3 in the fifth, but the Falcons answered with RBIs by Lambeth and Trace Harden to make it 8-3 in the sixth.

The Tigers got RBI hits by Kyle Stevenson and Rylee Kent in the seventh, but could get no closer than the final score.

Macinnis and Shumway ended up with three hits each for Canyon View (7-13 and 2-8), which still has an outside shot of forcing a play-in game. The Falcons would have to sweep Pine View next week and hope Hurricane sweeps Cedar to create a three-way tie for fourth place.

Hurricane had seven hits in the game, including two by Stevenson. Kent and Cayden Street each doubled for the Tigers, who fall to 7-14 and 0-10 on the year.
