A 7 run inning leads Majors to victory
With a little bit of a shakeup in the lineup, and Owen Boon on the mound for the Majors for his second straight Sunday start in a row would pitch 6 and 2/3rds innings in the Majors would be victorious 12-5 over the Cardinals
With the Majors victorious on Friday night, they looked to continue the offensive outburst as they have averaged 7.2 runs per game this season. It continued as Starling Joseph would score on by the Cardinals shortstop and Drew Lawrence would walk with the bases loaded bringing in Taylor Wright. Cleveland Brownlee would continue his impressive start to the season as he hit his 4th home run of the young season. The Majors would also take advantage of walks as in the third inning, McQueen would take a walk to earn himself an RBI with Robert Mullen coming into the game. The big blow would come in the top of the 6th inning with the left-handed first baseman coming into the game delivering a bases-clearing double before reaching third on an error. The Majors newest player Jakob Newton would show off his speed in the top of the 7th inning hitting a triple to lead off the inning before Cleveland would score him on a single giving the Majors an 8-4 lead. Between a two run double by Starling Joseph, a double by Taylor Wright and a single by Drew Lawrence, the Majors would put up 12 runs for the second time this season.
Owen Boon would start his 3rd start of the season going 6 and 2/3rds innings, allowing two runs, only one earned while striking out ten. Pedro De Los Santos would come out of the pen for the second time this season, recording the last out of the inning before handing it over to Bo Lewington for the 9th inning where he would close out the game.
The Majors are back in action on Friday, with completion of the home opener vs the Panthers starting at 6:30 before the regular scheduled game for 7 innings starting 15 minutes after the completion of the first game. Tickets from the home opener are valid for both games.
