The Normal CornBelters, presented by Illinois Corn Farmers, put their highest run total of the season on the board in an 11-3 win over the Frontier Greys on Friday night at the Corn Crib.
The CornBelters struck first with a three-run home run by Steven Felix with no outs planted on the right field lawn. 
The Greys cut the deficit to 3-1 in the third with a one-out double by Chris Kay and an RBI single from Justin Vasquez.
The Belters used the long ball to increase the lead to 5-1 in the third inning on a home run just over the left center field fence by Pat McKenna. Felix built the lead to 6-1 after reaching via single, stealing second, moving to third on a fielder's choice and coming home on a passed ball. 
Normal continued scoring in the fourth when David Remedios led off with a double and scored on a Mike Schwartz base hit. Schwartz came home after stealing second and completing the trip around the bases on a Romulo Ruiz base hit to give the hosts an 8-1 lead going into the fifth inning.
The Greys pushed across a run in the sixth when Mark Micowski doubled with one out, moved to third with two outs on a balk and scored on an infield single by Esteban Meletiche. The Greys continued the inning by loading the bases but did not score again in the frame to trail 8-2 going into the bottom of the sixth.
The CornBelters put another crooked number on the board in the sixth, starting with a lead-off single by Schwartz, who scored on a triple to straight-away center by McKenna. A fielder's choice by Felix scored McKenna to give the Belters a 10-2 lead after six innings.
The Greys cut the margin to 10-3 in the seventh with a one-out solo home run to left by Tyler Kolodny. 
The Belters increased their advantage to 11-3 thanks to a lead-off double by Devin Thaut, who traded places with David Remedios on an RBI double. 
Jose Trinidad (2-0) worked six innings for the win while Greys starter Joe Zeller (1-1) lasted just four innings and took the loss. Mitch Mormann pitched the final three innings for his second save.
