Tigers Move Over .500 with Win vs. Hillcrest

Republic moved above the .500 mark at the latest point in the season since 2015, beating Hillcrest 7-3 Friday. Clayton Crowley had two hits, including a two-run triple; and Kyle Hill added two hits and two runs scored for the Tigers, who improved to 10-9.

Tyler Cavener started on the mound and picked up the win. He worked 4 2/3 innings, allowing three runs (none earned) on three hits. He struck out five and walked six. Nick Rose finished the game in relief, working 2 1/3 scoreless innings. He allowed three hits, didn’t walk a batter, and struck out four.
