DANVILLE, Ill. -- An eight-game road trip didn't start off the way the Hannibal Hoots envisioned.

One swing by the Danville Dans ensured that.

Richard Sorrenti's two-run homer in the bottom of the eighth inning put the finishing touches on the Dans' 8-3 Prospect League victory over the Hoots Tuesday night at Danville Stadium.

Danville (11-4) scored the game's first four runs before Hannibal (6-11) whittled at the deficit as Benjamin Swords had an RBI double in the fourth, and Diego Munoz drew a bases-loaded walk in the sixth that made it 4-2.

The Hoots, however, got no closer.

The Dans scored an unearned run in the seventh on Andrew Meggs' RBI single. In the eighth, Jalen Jones' RBI single came one at-bat prior to Sorrenti's home run.

Danville had 10 hits, and Bradford Powers had three of them while driving in two runs. Hannibal was held to five hits as Kyler Kent had two.

Hannibal's Kyle Rosenfeld went six innings in the loss, allowing five runs on five hits while striking out two and walking two.
