Spence, Sarringar Each Drive in Five as Birds Trounce Sioux City

Sioux Falls, SD – After falling being 2-0 early, the Canaries put up 13 unanswered runs Saturday night during a 13-2 rout of rival Sioux City.

Liam Spence tied the game with a two-run double before Spencer Sarringar put Sioux Falls in front for good with a two-run homerun. Trevor Achenbach followed with a single and raced home on a triple from Hunter Clanin.

Spence crushed a three-run homerun an inning later and Achenbach ripped a solo shot to lead off the fifth.

Wyatt Ulrich brought in another run with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning before Sarringar mashed his second round-tripper of the night; a three run shot.

Ty Culbreth tossed six strong innings to improve to 3-0 while the Birds collected 15 total hits. Sioux Falls (12-7) remains atop the West Division standings and will look to capture the series Sunday afternoon at 4:05pm.
