OFF ON A HIGH NOTE

McLennan's big bats too much for Florence-Darlington

The McLennan Community College (Texas) baseball team put its power on display in the relatively thin air Sunday night at Suplizio Field, launching four home runs in a 10-1 seven-inning win over Florence-Darlington Technical College (South Carolina) at the Alpine Bank Junior College World Series.

The Highlanders (52-11, 1-0 JUCO) hit to all parts of Suplizio Field, using the long ball to pound the Stingers (42-18, 0-1).

“They ran some good arms at us today and gave us some trouble,” McLennan coach Mitch Thompson said. “We struck out too many times, but we hit four or five long balls and that was kinda the difference in the ball game.

“We’ve hit (home runs) all year, so I’m not just gunna say it’s the thin air in Colorado, but we’ll take that thin air. It was good.”
