The Kansas Cannons jumped on Park City for five runs in the first inning and cruised to a 7-4 win over the Rangers Wednesday at Newman University.
It was the third straight win for the Cannons (8-5) and the sixth out of their last eight games.
The first two runs of the game came across when Park City pitchers issued bases-loaded walks. With the sacks still jammed, a double by Tory Stoffregen cleared them for a 5-0 lead.
The Cannons added another run in the top of the second when Scott Sammons doubled home Josh Halbert, who had walked and moved to second on a ground out.
Park City got on the board in the bottom of the second with a pair of runs off starting pitcher Dennis Martinez. Those were the only runs Martinez allowed, as he tossed six strong innings. He gave up two hits, walked three and struck out seven.
The Cannons added an insurance run in the eight on a single by Ty Kildow.
The Rangers added two more runs in the bottom of the ninth before closer Blaine Hashagen came on to get the final three outs for the save.
Stoffregen had three RBIs in the game, all on his first-inning double. Kildow, Halbert and Sammons each collected a pair of hits, with Halbert scoring twice.
The Cannons travel to Valley Center tonight for a nine-inning game at 7 p.m.
