Indian Hills Pounds DMACC

W, 17-9

Centerville -- The first three batters in the Indian Hills lineup combined to go 8-for-15 with nine runs scored and nine driven in, fueling the Falcons in a 17-9 beating of DMACC at Pat Daugherty Field Tuesday.

Leadoff hitter Will Zimmerman had a single and two triples, number-two man Ryan Humeniuk was 2-for-6, and Justin King went 3-for-5 with four runs scored in the Falcons' fifth straight win and their 18th overall.  Zimmerman knocked in four runs and King had three RBIs to increase his season total to 35.  Humeniuk leads IHCC with 41 runs-driven-in, two of them coming in this win.

Christian Pena added three hits to the Falcons' total and Jay Hester scored three runs despite not having a hit.

Indian Hills used six pitchers and the final two were the most effective.  Hunter Capps went 2 1/3 innings, allowing just one hit and striking out three in gaining the victory.  Ray Nolan added a scoreless inning of relief.

The Falcons fought back from a 7-3 deficit after 3 1/2 innings by scoring four runs in the 4th and adding five in the 6th.  They finished off the Bears with a four-run 8th inning.

IHCC will now play league doubleheaders against Marshalltown at home on Thursday and Friday.  The Falcons have split their first eight conference contests.
