Palm Springs, Calif. –  The Palm Springs Power mounted six extra base hits, including two home runs, to topple the San Diego Waves 10-6 Tuesday night at Palm Springs Stadium.

The ballgame was a back and forth battle with the Power taking the lead for good in the sixth inning by breaking a tie at six runs apiece. Aiden Taurek (St. Mary’s) led off the frame with a double and came around to score the go-ahead run on a RBI sacrifice fly off the bat of Alonso Reyes (UC Irvine).

Palm Springs tacked on insurance runs on RBI hits from Ely Brown (Mercer) and Taurek in the seventh. Cody Kashimoto (St. Mary’s) added to the party with a solo blast in the eighth for his first home run of the summer.

The offense got started with an RBI walk from Aidan Perez (Cal State Northridge), in a first inning that saw the Power load the bases and score, without recording a hit. Austin Haller (Western Kentucky) brought home his fourteenth and fifteenth RBI of the season with a double in the second, and Noah Blythe (Hawai’i Pacific) added a two-run home run in the fourth.

Brown led the offense with a perfect three-for-three night with a pair of RBI. Blythe extended his hitting streak to sixteen games and his on-base streak to twenty one. His homer was the first with the Power over his three seasons in Palm Springs.

Hudson Boncal (Ohio University) continued his successful first week in Palm Springs with a win on the mound. He hurled two innings of shutout baseball late, notching three strikeouts and only allowing one hit. He has yet to allow a run in his first three appearances in a Power uniform. Brenton Thiels (Louisiana Tech) pitched a scoreless ninth to secure the victory.

Palm Springs improves to 21-0 and 12-0 in the CPCL. The Power extend their franchise record to 40 straight wins, dating back to last season.
