ADVANCE -- Alex Davie threw four innings of 1-hit baseball and the Chaffee Red Devils tallied 11 hits on Monday to open their 2012 season with a 10-0 rout of Advance.
Chaffee (1-0) scored four runs in the first three innings and capped the game with six runs in the fourth, bringing about the 10-run mercy rule.
"It was a great start to the season," Chaffee coach Brian Horrell said. "Our pitcher got ahead of hitters and we really swung the bats well."
Davie, who threw all four innings while allowing one hit, three walks and striking out eight, picked up the win. Advance's Ryan Moses took the loss giving up all 11 of Chaffee's hits.
Cody Payne led Chaffee with three RBI which included a solo shot to start the 2012 campaign as the first batter in the first inning.
Jared Walker added two hits and two RBI while Davie went 4 for 4.
"It was good to see our bats and the way we were swinging them today," Horrell said. "Especially, since we'll have a tough one against Cape Central on Wednesday."
Chaffee will host the Tigers on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
