TALENT — Jordan Decker has been slowed by injuries this season but the junior right fielder didn't show any rust with his bat Saturday.

Decker collected four hits and accounted for five RBIs as Phoenix registered a Skyline Conference baseball doubleheader victory over North Valley, 10-0 and 11-1, at Hagler-James Field.

In the opener, which ended in five innings, Decker was 2-for-2 with one run and one RBI. He went 2-for-3 with four RBIs in the six-inning nightcap.

"It's nice to see that," said Phoenix coach Joe Hagler about Decker, who's had a hip injury. "He's been hobbled a little bit. We're trying to get him back to full speed."

Neil Emerson pitched a gem in the first game to improve his record to 7-0. Emerson struck out six, walked one and lowered his season ERA to 0.65.

"The biggest thing for (Emerson) is he throws three pitches for a strike," said Hagler. "Batters have a hard time figuring him out."

The second-ranked Pirates (17-2, 9-0 Skyline) put the game away with an eight-run fourth inning. Phoenix collected seven of its 12 hits in the frame. Kory Locken had a two-run single, while Mike Shepherd, Ryan Robinson, Andrew George and Decker each drove in one run.

In the second game, Phoenix pitchers Codey Barrett and Robinson combined for seven strikeouts. Barrett pitched five shutout innings, while the Knights touched Robinson for an unearned run in his one inning of relief.

Phoenix ended the game with a seven-run outburst in the sixth inning. Emerson's two-run double gave the Pirates a 10-1 lead, then Emerson scored on a throwing error on Barrett's fly-ball out.
