It was a night to remember at the old ball field in Huffman,Texas on Monday, February 17, 2014. First, the weather was picture perfect for the Huffman Falcons baseball season home opener. Second, longtime Huffman resident and active member of Huffman Little League baseball Ken Moran threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Third, the Huffman Falcons rode a seven run fifth inning explosion to a 10-0 win over the NorthBrook Raiders.

Huffman starter Jay Hackett and Jake Harrison combined to shutdown the Raiders in a game ended by the ten run rule. Hackett pitched the first four innings striking out five while Harrison struck out the side to close out the fifth.

The Falcons squandered run scoring opportunities in the first and second stranding four runners but broke through against NorthBrook's Isaac Guerra in the third.

Senior Clay Barnes singled to open the third and scored the game's first run on a throwing error by Guerra. First baseman Cody Stone singled home Cody Gaitan who reached on Guerra's throwing error. Stone scored on a sacrifice fly by junior catcher James Tutor.

After wasting a two out double by Barnes in the fourth, the Falcons sent ten men to the plate in the seven run fifth.

Stone started the fifth with a ringing double into the left-center field gap and scored on a Matthew Bumpas single into right on Guerra's next pitch. A dropped third strike and a walk to Tutor loaded the bases for the Falcons designated hitter, Jake Malone. The lanky left-handed hitter stroked a 1-2 Guerra offering into right field for a two run double and a 7-0 lead. A two base error scored Malone from first and put senior Tyler Hebert on second. One out later, Barnes delivered his third hit of the night scoring Hebert before Stone ended the game game with an rbi double.

Barnes lead the nine hit Huffman attack with a perfect 3-3 at the plate plus a walk.

Huffman travels to the Oak Ridge Tournamentin Conroe beginning on Thursday with a games against New Caney (2:30p.m.) and St. Thomas at 5p.m.
