The Turpin Cardinals exploded for 30 runs in two run-rule wins that lasted a total of five innings over the Tyrone Bobcats who are still searching for their first win. Turpin won game one 11-1 and game two 19-1.
The Cardinals scored four two-out runs in the first, and Tyrone's Cole Wall scored on an error to make the score 4-1 after one. Turpin added seven more in the second, and Clinton Toney allowed no hits and struckout eight in the three-inning game.
In game two Turpin waisted no time in putting it out of reach, scoring twelve runs in the first inning, going through the entire lineup twice.
Cole Wall once again scored in the first from the lead off position after doubling to deep left field to score the Bobcats only run of the game.
Turpin ended the game with seven more runs in the second, and a shutout of the Bobcats in the bottom half of the inning.
Turpin's Andres Grajeda led the Cardinal offense going 4-of-5 at the plate, with two homeruns, a triple, a double, a walk, five runs scored, and six RBI. Chance Dye went 3 of 4 with a home run, two walks, four runs scored, and four RBI. Justin McIntyre had two doubles, four runs scored and three RBI, and Cale Longhofer homered, doubled, and scored five runs.
