Boon Pitches the Majors to the Finals
Twenty-four hours after an exciting game one of the IBL Semi-Finals the Majors were back in action on the road looking to book their ticket to the finals.
With De Los Santos going last night, Owen Boon was on the mound and was looking to match Pedro's performance. Boon, known for his overpowering fastball, would pitch one of the best playoff games in Majors history. Going a complete game with a career-high 16 strikeouts with only 5 hits and 1 walk proving that he is a true ace this season.
Offensively, the Red Sox starter Adam Jafine would pitch very well until the 5th inning were a single by Austin Wilkie and Keith Kandel followed by an error would lead to the base's load. Carlos Arteaga would hit a sharp hit down at the third baseman who would have a critical error leading to 2 runs and Arteaga on second. A passed ball and a Byron Reichstein single would put the Majors in front for good. In the 9th inning, Chris McQueen would single to lead off before stealing 2 bases and then coming around on a ground out to cap off the scoring.
The Majors will now wait till the schedule is announced for the finals where they will take on the Toronto Maple Leafs who completed the sweep vs the Barrie Baycats on Saturday.
