PALM SPRINGS, Calif. ~ The Power looked to continue their hot start on Tuesday night against the visiting OC Pirates at Palm Springs Stadium.
Hofstra University junior Steve Boscia started on the mound for the Power and tossed five shutout innings, in which he dealt nine strikeouts and allowed just five hits.
In an explosive eight-run first inning, Brett Young and Matt Sosa were both hit in the head by pitches. Fortunately, both batters trotted to first unscathed and eventually came around to score to put the Power up early.
Catcher Jayden Kiernan went 4-for-4 at the plate, logging 3 RBIs on three singles and a double.
Jacob Talamante went 3-for-5 with 3 RBIs of his own, legging out a deep triple and two singles in the effort.
Izayah Alvarez played in just four innings before he was substituted, but recorded an impressive 2-2 (2B, 1B), 2 RBI offensive performance in that time.
Position player Matt Green (OF/1B) surprised fans as he came in to close on the mound in the eighth and delivered five strikeouts over two hitless, scoreless innings.
The Power were ultimately victorious in dominating fashion, winning 15-6 for their fourth straight. Palm Springs will search for their fifth in a row at home as they finish up a two-game series with the OC Pirates tomorrow night at 7:05PM.
