Seth Ford continued to swing a hot bat Thursday and four teammates had multiple hits as Donoho scored its second area victory of the season, 16-1 over Faith Christian.
Ford, who had two homers and six RBIs in the Falcons’ last game, went 3-for-4 with three RBIs against the Lions. Blake Willingham also went 3-for-4 for the Falcons (4-1), while Grayson Marlowe, Tyler Allen and Rod Elston all went 2-for-2. Allen, Elston and Jase Alderman all drove in a pair of runs.
Ford is batting .611 this season (11-for-18) with 16 RBIs and a five-game hitting streak. He is 10-for-15 with 16 RBIs and five extra-base hits in the Falcons’ four victories and in two games against Faith he is 5-for-8 with six runs and five RBIs.
John Noone and Willingham held the Lions to two singles in the five-inning game and struck out six. 
Brodie Sewell and Josh Rutledge had Faith’s two hits. Rutledge drove in the Lions’ run with a fourth-inning single.
