After 6: Silver Hawks lead 5-3

We're six innings deep at Parkview Field, and the Silver Hawks lead 5-3, thanks to a four-run fourth inning.

Brandon Drury unknotted it with yet another solo homer, this time to right, and the inning unraveled from there. Rudy Flores immediately drew a walk, Fidel Pena followed with a single, and after Roidany Aguila bounced out to short, shortstop Tyler Stubblefield muffed a double-play relay at second, allowing Flores to score and keeping all hands safe.

Breland Almadova followed with a single off third baseman Gabriel Quintana's glove, Andrew Velasquez followed with a single to center that chased home Pena and Mike Lang, and by the time the TinCaps wobbled out of the inning, it was a 5-1 game.

The TinCaps got two back in their half, Alberth Martinez coming home on Hunter Renfroe's groundout and Luis Domoromo chasing Gabriel Quintana to the plate with a single to right.
