Port Angeles continues play at the Cal Ripken Major World Series this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. against the team from Tulare, Calif.

Merritt blasted two three-run home runs, including one in Port Angeles' nine-run first inning that kick-started the blowout.

Ethan Floodstrom led off the bottom of the first with a solo homer that tied the game at 1-1.

Port Angeles added four runs in the second and three in the third to put the mercy rule into effect after three and a half innings.
