FAIRFIELD — If it weren’t for a nine-run inning, the score would have been a lot closer.

TC Legion plated nine runs in the bottom of the first inning to defeat the Concord Oaks Baseball Club 14-4, at Laurel Creek Park, Friday.

TC Legion’s first six batters ended up crossing home plate before the first out of the inning. Miguel San Antonio and Carson Leber scored two runs in the inning.

“We don’t get a lot of comfortable wins,” TC Legion manager Mo Terrell said. “We play a lot of close games. . . . It’s always good to get nine runs in the first inning.”

The Oaks’ starting pitcher could not find the strike zone, throwing 26 pitches in the opening inning, hitting four different batters – one of which was with the bases loaded, scoring Frank Tom.

TC Legion might have had something to do with the shaky start, with San Antonio leading off the game with a triple that sailed over the head of the right fielder. The Oaks then hit back-to-back batters, loading the bases.

Tom then hit a single between third and shortstop, plating San Antonio. Robert Hutting and Anthony Canavesio then hit back-to-back singles, plating Leber and Andruw Shaw. respectively.

The big hit of the inning came on a bases-clearing double from in Leber’s second at-bat of the inning, plating Canavesio, Alex Devine and San Antonio.

TC Legion would not score again until two runs came in in the home-half of the third and two in the fifth inning.

Tom led TC LEgion at the plate, finishing 4 for 4 with a double and two RBIs, while Canavesio was 3 for 4 with two RBIs. Leber led in RBIs with four, finishing 2 for 3 with a walk.

Starting pitcher Andreyes Palacios had a solid start, allowing four runs on eight hits with seven strikeouts in six innings of work.

TC Legion’s defense had some bright spots, one coming in the top of the third with the bases loaded and one out. The Oaks’ Gio Mijares hit a grounder to Shaw, who stepped on third for the force and threw it to first for the double play.

Another highlight came in the top of the fifth as TC Legion’sHutting did the splits, getting the second out on a throw from Leber, the third baseman.

TC Legion plays the Oaks again in a doubleheader on Sunday, and though Terrell was happy about his team’s win, he knows they can play better.

“We have to work a little harder,” Terrell said. “We let our guard down, committing five errors, which is a lot. I know this team, and I know they are going to be a lot better than they were today. We can’t take them lightly. For whatever reason, we just jumped on them today. It will be a tougher task, Sunday.”
