The Thunder Mountain baseball team got only five hits, and the Wolves’ offense scored 15 runs on its way to a 15-5 win over the Falcons on Saturday in Sitka.
Wolves center fielder V.J. Carlos reached base in all four plate appearances, including two home runs on a day where the Sitka offense was firing on all cylinders.
Michael Matz pitched five innings for the Wolves, allowing five earned runs on five hits while striking out three batters.
Sitka jumped out in front early with seven runs in the first two innings to put the Falcons on their heels from the first pitch. But Thunder Mountain was able to respond with five runs in the third on the strength of a three-run bomb by Gus Swanton.
Still, the Wolves continued to pour it on with eight more runs in the third and fourth innings before the game ended after the Falcons batted in the top of the fifth.
Jackson Pavitt pitched 2 2/3 innings, allowing eight earned runs on seven hits. The sophomore pitcher also struck out two batters.
Gus Swanton, Dylan Johnson and Brett Underwood each ended up with a hit apiece, while Dustin Rumfelt went 2-for-3 with two singles.
Matz had three hits to go along with a complete game pitching performance, and Carlos, Tiki Oneill and Svenson Nels each had two hits for Sitka.
