MEDFORD, Ore. – Fairfield took advantage of nine Klamath Falls walks and turned three double plays, as the Expos blanked the Falcons, 12-0, on Day 2 of the Coach K Classic at North Medford High.

Chase Johnson tossed a 5-hit shutout, working out of trouble in the first, fourth and fifth innings to keep his team unbeaten in tournament play.

Catcher Aaron Strong provided the big blast in an 8-run fourth inning rally, clearing the bases with a double into the left-center gap.

The Falcons (6-11) had runners at first and second in the opening inning, but a double play ball ended the threat. The squad stranded a runner at third in the third, had runners at the corners in both the fourth and fifth innings – but double play balled ended the rally.

Mark Carpenter had two hits, with P.J. Safford, Kollin Tacchini and Carson Siems each recording a single.

Starter Max Price allowed five hits in three innings of work, but walked seven and hit two batters, taking the loss.
