The Saints guar­an­teed there’d be no sev­enth in­ning, col­lect­ing five of their 15 hits in the sixth for an eightrun out­burst that made it 20-3.

Lefty re­liever Noah Brack, who had pitched the bot­tom of the fifth, re­tired the side in the home half of the sixth to wrap things up.

“I know we’re ca­pa­ble of do­ing so much as a team,” Wolfe said. “If it means any­thing, in prac­tice, we’re good. We hit, we pitch well, and we look great de­fen­sively. But it’s just not hap­pen­ing in games . ... I feel like we’ve only re­ally had it all to­gether in one game (a 30-0 de­feat to Cr­is­field two weeks back). Other wise, we’ll have a cou­ple of kids hit­ting, or one pitch­ing and us not hit­ting, but never ev­ery­thing at once.”

“I like the way our kids hit the ball,” Femi said. “I think we’re at about where I ex­pected we might be, at this point [in the sea­son]. We’re still a lit­tle young, but we only lost one player from last year’s team . ... I think if we can keep it go­ing we might be able to make a run.”

Hein­lein reached base in all four trips, fin­ish­ing 3 for 3 with a dou­ble, scor­ing three times and driv­ing in three runs. Parks was 2 for 3, and Stan­ford was 2 for 2 with a walk, scor­ing three times in the nine-hole, steal­ing sec­ond twice.

The Saints visit Mardela on Thurs­day, while C-SD plays at Po­comoke. Both games are set for 4 p.m. North Caro­line 4,

Kent County 3 RIDGELY — Se­nior right-han­der Joe Bu­rack was per­fect through four, and went the dis­tance to get the win, as the Bull­dogs im­proved to 5-5, 1-3. Bu­rack struck out eight, and went 2 for 3 at the plate.
