ACCIDENT  — Northern buried Mountain Ridge in an avalanche of hits and runs Tuesday afternoon, pounding out 14 hits to walk away with a 13-1 win in a battle of the two teams tied for third in the Times-News baseball poll.

The Huskies, who finish the season 13-6 (7-4 Appalachian Mountain Athletic Conference) and will play Monday in the second round of the Maryland 1A West Section Playoffs after playing their way to the No. 2 seed and earning a first-round bye, scored four times in the second inning and added six more in the sixth to force the 10-run rule. Brooks Carr delivered a grand slam in the sixth that increased the lead from 9-1 to 13-1 and ended the day.

Tyler McClintock singled three times and drove in two runs and Kollin Keister added three singles and one RBI. Aaron Rodeheaver drove in three Huskies with two singles and Logan Yommer hit a double and a single.

Hunter Hill allowed four hits, one run and struck out six in a complete game.

Jalen Washington hit a solo home run in the top of the sixth for Mountain Ridge’s run.

The game was the completion of one that began April 28, but only got into the top of the second before rain halted everything.

Mountain Ridge (10-4-1, 7-3-1 AMAC) is scheduled to play today at Fort Hill.
