The Tor bats exploded in the 6th inning Tuesday evening to catapult Ball High’s Boys of Summer past the Texas City Stingarees in a District 22 5-A battle, 8-0, pushing the Tors winning streak to five games.

Behind the one-hit pitching of Chris Orton and reliever Trent Lawrence, the Tors clawed their way into a first place tie with Goose Creek Memorial (5-1) and the Santa Fe Indians (6-1), a team the Tors will face Friday evening in Santa Fe with first place in the district at stake.

Coming to the plate in the top of the sixth, the Tors clung to a slim 2-0 lead over the Stingarees, but Ball High sent 12 players to the plate in the inning to ice the game by pushing across six runs and extending their lead to 8-0.

Texas City had two innings to climb back into the game, but Orton and Lawrence kept the Stingarees’ bats quiet in the 6th and 7th innings and the Tors headed back to Galveston Island tied for first place in 22-5A.

Nick Smecca, called up from the JV team because of an injury to Trent Raschke, provided a timely hit, knocking in two runs for the Tors in the sixth inning as the sophomore delivered in his first varsity action of the season.

The Tors travel to Santa Fe Friday afternoon to take on the Santa Fe Indians in a battle royal for first place in District 22-5A. The game will be broadcast live on KTOR the Tornado.
