A two-run lead going into the eight inning was not enough for the Seattle Studs. And they wanted to make that clear against the North Sound Emeralds on Tuesday night.

Seattle capped-off a 10-run inning to give themselves a 13-1 win. They recorded eight hits in that inning–and three of them were balls pulverized over the fence.

It all started with Kyle Boe’s single as he was on the base paths for a brief moment. The next batter–Landon Riker crushed one deep to give the Studs a 5-1 lead. Garrett Brenda’s double brought it one and a pitching change by the Emeralds was made and it was not an issue for Jacob Hirsh. He added a homer to his resume–a three-run shot for a commanding 9-1 lead.

Jon Burghardt decided it was his turn a few batters later–adding a three-run homer to end the catastrophic inning.

Trey Tiffany of the North Sound Emeralds kept his team in the game–giving his offense the opportunity to amass something. He went a complete six innings, three runs (two earned), nine hits, no walks and six strikeouts.

Two of the runs came in the third inning after Hirsh’s two-out triple. He scored with ease on Connor Savage’s single–but Savage advanced to third on an error by the catcher and scored (unearned) on Boe’s single.

The Emeralds offense was stymied all game–despite recording ten hits. They left 12 runners on base and were 1/9 with runners in scoring position. Their lone run came in the bottom of the fourth leading off with Hudson Byorick’s double. David Gibbons followed with a double to score Byorick.

Zander Clouse of the Studs came in for relief after David Benson went just two innings to begin the game. Clouse pitched six innings, giving up the one run in the fourth, eight hits, two walks and striking out five batters.

Riker and Boe each had four hits to improve both of their batting averages to nearly .400.
