Pounding out 18 hits, Albion romped to a 17-1 victory over the host Alden Gold team Tuesday evening to improve to 4-0 in Tri-County Babe Ruth League action.

Thomas Furmanski had 5 hits, Drew Caldwell 4, Patrick Ricker 3 and Zach Colacecchi 2 to lead the Albion attack.

Caldwell had a two-run single in the first inning and a two-run double in the second as Albion tallied three times in both frames. He later banged out a two-run double to highlight a five run fifth inning.

Furmanski’s hits included a three-run home run in the sixth inning and a two-run double which keyed a four run seventh frame.

On the mound Bailey Blanchard struck out 8 over the first four innings and Kyle Woolston fanned 7 over the final three frames. They combined on a two hitter.

Albion next visits Alexander on Thursday.
