College of the Canyons matched its season-high run total with an emphatic 18-1 five-inning home win over Victor Valley College on Tuesday.
Canyons (10-8, 4-2) clubbed 13 hits in the game, but did most of its damage in a big 14-run first inning. COC brought 17 batters to the plate in the first frame, nearly batting through the lineup twice.
Victor Valley (4-12, 1-5) scored its lone run in the third inning but was never really in the game.
The Lady Cougars continue the current homestand with a 2:30 p.m. matchup vs. Barstow College on Thursday, followed by a home doubleheader vs. Santa Monica on Friday.
