Stempel, hitting cleanup, had three hits and scored three runs as the top-ranked Tigers (10-2, 3-0) scored three times in the first, third and fourth innings against the sixth-rated Warriors (4-3, 2-1).

“I’ve been in a little bit of a slump lately, so that was a nice way to pull myself out of it,” Stempel, a senior first baseman, said. “Caleb threw an outstanding game and our hitters were there to back him up.”

Amity sophomore leadoff hitter Luke Johnston had the only hit off King, who walked none in a game shortened to five innings by the 10-run mercy rule.

Senior Josh Salsbery and juniors Kam Kessler and Tyee Fisher also drove in runs for Taft, winners of four straight. Sophomore Caleb Jones joined second baseman Knott with two hits apiece for the Tigers, while Knott and King scored two runs each.

Sophomore Brody Roberts, who surrendered 12 hits, took the loss for the Warriors.

Taft, which hosts Santiam Christian at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, had its game Saturday against Wahkiakum, Wash., canceled due to severe weather warnings.
