The Huskies came right back and scored two runs in the first with the top of its order - Bird doubled to lead off, No. 3 hitter Ryan Shamblin singled and cleanup hitter Cody Bowen singled to tie the score.
The top did its damage, as Hoover took a 3-2 lead in the second and extended it to 4-2 in the fifth behind a Shamblin run-scoring single.
The floodgates were opened by the bottom of the Hoover lineup, with No. 6 hitter Tristan Fields, White and No. 8 hitter Sean Craze getting singles during a six-run sixth. Craze's hit knocked in a run and Sissonville helped Hoover with three errors in the inning.
Null, who had given up three earned runs in five innings, could keep up with Fields - Hoover's starting pitcher. The left-hander struck out nine Hoover batters, but had only one in the sixth and seventh innings. Five of Hoover's six runs in the sixth inning were unearned.
"I'm proud of him, he pitched his heart out," Sissonville Coach Kenny Harper said. "The wheels fell off and we couldn't stop it. It just starting snowballing."
Fields, who was making his ninth start of the season, shook off some early-game struggles to face one over the minimum number of batters in all but two innings. He struck out the side in the second and seventh innings and was helped by some Sissonville base-running mistakes.
"I was dehydrated ... I'm still dehydrated," Fields said after the game. "I owe it all to my defense. Every time a ball was put in play they made a play and that calmed me down."
Fields, who shaved off another 14 points from his earned run average (1.98 to 1.84), struck out 11 batters and didn't issue a walk. The junior has 69 strikeouts and seven walks in 49 1/3 innings this season. His only loss is an April 19 hiccup at Poca.
He was dominant against the bottom of Sissonville's lineup, which saw its No. 6 through No. 9 hitters go 1-for-10 with eight strikeouts.
Meanwhile, the bottom four hitters for Hoover were 6-for-14 with two doubles and two RBI.
