RJ Blake reached base on an error and scored on Carlos Romero’s single. But the Hawks scored eight runs in the top of the second inning off two hits and five walks. After scoring another run in the fifth for a 9-1 lead, Liberty Ranch took advantage of four hits, four walks and a D’backs error in the top of the sixth to score seven runs. The game ended after six innings because of the 10-run mercy rule. Union Mine had five hits in the game; Mike Davis was 2-for-2 with a double. Nate Brown was also 2-for-2. LIberty Ranch had nine hits. The D’backs honored their five seniors on Senior Day; Sean Tow, Charles Simpson, Davis, Romero and Brian Smith.
