The power parade came early and often for Battle Ground softball on Wednesday.

The Tigers slugged eight home runs by seven different players in a 15-3 home win over Evergreen.

Brooke Rausch, Candice Torgerson, Candice Adams, Delyla Gruenberg and Hailey Ferguson all homered in Battle Ground’s eight-run first inning.

Zoey Hughes added a home run in the second inning before Ferguson clubbed her second homer in the third.

Seyah Lindersmith capped her three-hit day with a home run in the fourth inning.

Battle Ground improved to 5-1 with the win and has scored 31 runs over the past two games.
