CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- The Hannibal Hoots put plenty of balls in play Friday night.

It amounted to very little in the end.

Despite collecting nine hits off four Cape pitchers, Hannibal mustered just one run and couldn't quiet the Catfish offensively, suffering an 11-1 Prospect League loss at Capaha Field.

Tied at 1 after Damian Yenzi was stranded following a two-out single in the top of the third, the Catfish took the lead for good with a five-run outburst in the bottom of the frame.

Ellison Hanna's RBI double kickstarted three straight run-scoring at-bats, a stretch that ended with Taylor Pridgen's two-run single.

The Catfish tacked on runs in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings, finishing with 13 hits overall and seven extra-base hits. Hoots right-hander Jordan Young suffered the loss, allowing six runs and seven hits over 21/3 innings.

Hannibal used four other pitchers, each of which allowed at least one earned run.

Hoots second baseman Drew Gilin went 3 for 4 and Yenzi finished 2 for 3, but Hannibal left nine runners on base.
