Barlow makes quick work of Canby
Barlow's Senior National baseball squad took quick command in Wednesday's 15-5 home win over Canby.
The visiting Cougars pushed across one run in their first at-bats, but Barlow retired the side when Reilin Vaughn tracked down an overthrow in the center field grass and threw out a Canby runner trying to advance to third base.
Barlow got its hands on the bats, and the game was over.
Elijah Lorenzen drilled a line drive to center field to put the Bruins in front before Canby could register an out. Lorenzen would sprint home himself on a wild pitch, and Vaughn smacked a two-run single to right field to bring Barlow to the 5-run maximum for the inning.
The Bruins defense came up big again in the second inning, this time with Christopher Sidey throwing out a runner out of center field.
Barlow would hit the five-run max again in the second inning, highlighted by Trent O'Hara's two-run double to left field.
Ransom Lorenzen led the Bruin bats by going 3-for-3 with five RBIs.
Barlow starter Wyatt Yeomans struck out two batters through the first two innings, while relievers C.J. Keith and Jacob Katz combined to allow one hit over the final three innings.
Barlow (12-5) sits third in its division heading into Monday's regular-season finale against Corbett.
