Green broke open a tie game with 10 runs over the final four innings to beat the Lucasville Valley Indians 13-7 Tuesday.

"We came out flat, but then we picked it up a little," said Green coach Dave Shoupe. "The thing we did was hit the ball with two strikes more than we have been, and we put the ball in play and made them field it and capitalized on their mistakes."

Green, 6-0, banged out 13 hits led by Jared Hineman who ws 3-4 with a home run. Tim Brumfield and Chris Williams were 3-5 and Kyle Dyer was 2-3.

Jason Bennett worked the final five innings and picked up the win. He struck out four, walked four, and gave up with hits.

Green took a 2-0 lead in the first inning when Brumfield reached on an error, Williams singled in the run, stole second and came home when Pat McDavid grounded out for an RBI,

Valley got a run in each of the first and second innings to tie the game, then Green scored a run in the top of the third.

Brumfield singled, took second on an outfield error, took third on another error, and scored on Jason Bennett’s sacrifice fly.

The Indians got a run to tie the game in the bottom of the inning, but Green got four runs in the fourth.

Dyer doubled and Hineman slammed a two-run homer to start the rally. Brumfield and Williams singled and two errors produced the other two runs.

A run scored in the fifth when Eric Bennett walked and Hineman doubled. Valley got the run back in the bottom of the inning and it was 8-4.
