Palm Springs, Calif~ The POWER earned their 13th straight victory on Friday night, beating conference opponent the Inland Valley Pirates 5-1. The POWER got the scoring off early in the 2nd inning, scoring 3 runs thanks to a two out rally that was lead by Blake Daniels reaching base on an error, Austin Bull working the count to earn a 2 out walk, then Brett Young knocking both runners in with a two out two RBI double. The offense didn’t stop there, as Jayden Kiernan reached base in each of his at bats with 3 walks, and a single. Hobbs Nyberg also had a solid offensive night, walking twice and adding an RBI triple to his stat line. New comer Austin Bull of Grand Canyon University lead the team offensively with 3 walks, a single and 3 stolen bases while also showing off some solid defensive moves at short stop. On the mound for the POWER Jack Jett tossed 7 innings and struck out 6 in another 5 inning plus performance. The POWER look to continue this hot start as they once again face the Inland Valley Pirates on Saturday to cap off the 2 game series and look to keep the good times rolling through Saturday and into their away game doubleheader against the San Diego Force on Sunday.
