Worcester pounded by the Surf.
The Surf's 19 runs tied a Can-Am League high for this season, and they pounded out 20 hits to win the weekend series.
The Surf jumped all over Tornadoes starter Reid Willett (2-7), scoring seven runs in the first inning, one in the second, and seven more in the third. Willett was charged with 14 earned runs on 12 hits and five walks in 2-plus innings.
The Tornadoes picked up a run in the first and another in the third on Dominic Ramos' fifth home run of the season.
Ramos went 4 for 5 on the night with the home run, his league-leading sixth triple, three RBIs and three runs scored and came just a double shy of the cycle.
The Tornadoes batted around in the fourth inning off righty Ben Thurmond (7-5), starting the inning with six straight hits, and all six men scored, as Worcester closed within seven, 15-8.
The Surf closed things out with two runs in the fourth on two Shaun McNamara wild pitches and two more in the sixth on a David Keesee two-run homer off Mike Meagher to provide the final tally.
Worcester hopes to reverse the trend when they return home to start a four-game series with Nashua at 7 tonight
