Hamilton comes back to win game 3
With game 4 in the Welland/Toronto series being postponed, all eyes were in Hamilton as the Majors looked to clinch their ticket to the finals while the Cardinals looked to avoid elimination. Hamilton had a big 7th inning leading them to a 3-2 victory, making the series a 2-1 Majors lead.
Pedro De Los Santos made his second start of the playoffs for the Majors and it was a continuation of his last outing. Pedro went 6.2 innings while only having one blemish on his stat line giving up a 3-run home run in the 7th inning while he managed 9 strikeouts. Braeden Ferrington entered in the 7th going 1.1 innings while only allowing 1 hit and shutting the Cardinals down for the rest of the game.
In what looked to be a low-scoring game throughout most of this game, the Majors lead the Cardinals 2-0 through 5 innings. Cleveland Brownlee drove in the game's first run on a ground out to 2nd base that allowed Jakob Newton to score from third. Taylor Wright would have a solo home run sneaking just inside the foul pole to extend the lead. Unfortunately, the Majors’ offence would be silent from the third inning on.
The next game is Friday night back in Hamilton as the Majors will look to take the series on the road again in Hamilton before possibly returning to Labatt Park if necessary on Saturday for game 5.
