Majors cap the season with a 13-7 win
It was the end of the year and the Majors head into the playoffs with a first round bye but they definitely wanted to go into it feeling hot, heading into Sunday taking on the Kitchener Panthers.
With Nick Carrell starting the game on the mound he would have one of his best outings of his short season where he would go 7 innings while striking out 8 and only allowing 4 earned runs while walking zero which is a key factor for him. With having a week off and getting 2 arms in last night in Welland, Roop would look to do the same and have Luke Kelley come in and pitch the 8th and 9th inning where he would strike out 2 and allow 3 runs. Both players had a great outing for the team and look to head into the playoffs with positions in the rotation and bullpen in their hands.
Offensively the Majors were able to continue career best years for some players. Byron Reichstein and Cleveland Brownlee would both score a run each in the 1st before Byron Reichstein would hit at the time his team leading 7th home run giving the Majors a 4-0 lead. With Cleveland Brownlee coming to the plate looking to tie Byron in the team lead he would waste no time hitting a monster home run, tying him with Byron.
Evan Britt who is having himself a career year with already having two home runs on the season he would be able to find his third home run and also the game winning run. Adam Filmon would also go 2 for 5 with an insurance RBI for the Majors putting them up 10-4 with the final being 13-7. Carlos Arteaga would also go 3 for 5 with a walk and rbi in the game as well.
The Majors will now wait to see how the first round of the playoffs play out and wait for the lowest seeded team to finish and play them in round two. The playoffs will include matchups of Kitchener (3) vs Brantford (6), Toronto (2) vs Hamilton (7) and Welland (4) vs Barrie (5) starting Thursday night. The Majors will update their playoff schedule as soon as it becomes available.
