An 8-run fifth stopped this one as Hull Lift Trucks slammed DDS 13-1 in a battle of Decatur Mays clubs Tuesday. Colin Mills doubled with 2 of Hull's 7 hits in the victory.
Logan Arriaga took the win as he came on in the third to a bases-loaded jam and threw one pitchy, getting David Noetzel to ground back to the mound to get out of the mess. Arriaga fanned 5 with no walks and 2 hits allowed as he relieved Johnathan Wilder, who fanned 4, walked three and gave up no hits in 2-plus innings.
Jovan Martinez tripled for Dental. Brevin Slusher took the loss, striking out 8 with 4 walks and 6 hits allowed. Kory Feasel hurled one-hit relief.
Feasel's running catch in left-center on a ball hit by Wilder closed out one inning, but DDS could not find outs in that fifth frame.
