BURGAW -- James Kenan erupted for six first-inning runs and cruised past Pender, 10-1, in Tri-County 1-A Conference play Friday evening.

The Tigers, who knocked out six consecutive hits in the opening-inning surge, claimed their first league win of the season in two tries.

Ricky Langston paced Kenan's offense with four hits, an RBI and scored three runs. Seth Bass doubled and plated two runs in a 2-for-4 effort. Tyler Haney tripled and drove in two runs.

Daniel Bostic, Kedron Foster (two RBI), Gunnar Wolz, TJ Fullwood and Corey Sutton (RBI) each had one hit for the Tigers.

Haney posted 13 strikeouts, scattered five hits and permitted one unearned run in a complete-game effort.
