Published 1:48 pm Saturday, April 25, 2009

The United South Central pitching staff had been holding opponents to next-to-nothing over the course of the past three games, but Friday night the Rebel bats took all the pressure off the pitchers in a 21-9 victory over Blue Earth in Blue Earth.

USC (6-4, 4-1) pounded out 14 hits in the game and actually trailed 8-7 going into the fifth inning.

The Rebels exploded for 14 runs over the next three innings to pick up their fourth consecutive win after dropping four last week.
