Kaufman, Mahon lift Pirates past Cougars

TALENT - Kyle Kaufman provided the offense and Jake Mahon took care of the defense as Phoenix rolled over Illinois Valley, 11-1, in Skyline Conference baseball Tuesday.

Kaufman went 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBIs for Phoenix (13-7, 11-4 Skyline), while Mahon scattered five hits with six strikeouts in the six-inning affair.

"Jake had a good performance," said Phoenix coach Joe Hagler. "He was deep in the (pitch) count early in the game but settled down pretty well after the second inning."

Mahon got things going for Phoenix with a two-run double in the third, and Kaufman closed the door on the Cougars with a two-run double in the sixth.

Landon Rhodes went 2-for-4 with two runs, while Bobby Dawson added two hits and a RBI for the Pirates.
