MONROE—The HME Crushers lived up to their name Tuesday night in the play-in round of the double-elimination Sandy Koufax League tournament by smashing 12 hits, four of which were for extra bases, and easily defeated the Bluffton Parks team, 18-2.
The Crushers tallied five in the first, four in the second, seven in the third, and then polished the game off with two in the fourth.

The Clemente (7-8) group will compete at 6 p.m., the Mays (9-10) group at approximately 6:45, and the Reese (11-12) group at approximately 7:30 p.m.
