De Los Santos holds Red Sox to 3 Hits
In game one of what the Majors hope to be a long playoff run, Pedro De Los Santos had all the right stuff on Friday for the Majors, allowing zero runs and besting Brantford Red Sox by a score of 8-0
De Los Santos was the winning pitcher for the Majors. The southpaw allowed three hits and zero runs over nine innings, striking out 13 and walking one. It was a career-high for Pedro, besting the 12 strikeouts he had back last year on September 24th vs the Maple Leafs.
Majors fired up the offence in the first inning. Taylor Wright grounded out, scoring one run. Majors put up four runs in the third inning. The Majors' offence came from a triple by Byron Reichstein, a single by Cleveland Brownlee, and a double by Robert Mullen. Jakob Newton smacked the first run of the playoffs with a long ball in the sixth inning. Offensively, the Majors saw the ball well today, racking up 11 hits while scoring 9 runs. Reichstein, Newton, Wright, and Brownlee all collected multiple hits in the game. In the playoffs defensively sound baseball is key to a long playoff run and that was exactly what was accomplished tonight as the sure-handed Majors did not commit a single error.
