Brownlee hits Career high in loss to Royals
Going against a recent record breaker in Guelph on Saturday night as the Majors travelled down the 401 to take on Claudio Custodio. The Majors unfortunately would fall in this game 7-3.
The Majors were just like most opponents taking on Custodio as he only allowed 7 hits and 3 runs while also striking out 13 adding to his IBL Strikeout record. Byron Reichstein hit a big triple as the ball got into the alleyway at Hastings Stadium that started the scoring with Starling Joseph. Cleveland Brownlee came into the game tied for his season high in home runs but would quickly break that as he hit a leadoff home run in the 3rd inning. Unfortunately, the Majors would only get 3 runs in the game though.
Jose Arias would pitch 6 innings for the 12th straight time but would only get 4 strikeouts in the game. Arias came in leading the league in ERA but would give up 4 earned runs in the game. Pedro De Los Santos would pitch for his second time in 2 days giving up 2 runs on well-placed hits by the Royals. Anderson Acevedo would be the bright spot for the Majors as he came into the game pitching the 8th inning allowing only 1 hit.
