Majors defeated in walk off to Baycats
After two games called during the week, the Majors travelled to Barrie to take on the Baycats for their loan game of the weekend. After an incredible start, the Majors would get walked off by the Baycats 5-4.
It was an incredible outing by Owen Boon who continued his dominant season as he went 6 innings with 11 strikeouts with only 2 walks. Owen continues to put up high numbers in strikeouts while putting up low walk numbers each outing. Braeden Ferrington took over for Boon in the 7th inning going 2.1 innings and giving up 2 runs with 0 walks. Anfernee Benitez took over in the 9th and was unable to get an out as he hit the first 2 batters he faced before walking in the winning run.
Starling Joseph was a key piece to the Majors staying in this game as he drove in 2 runs in the 3rd inning with a double off the center field wall. Cleveland Brownlee also drove in a run in the 3rd inning as he flew a single into center field but was thrown out at 2nd trying to stretch it into a double. In the 7th inning, Keith Kandel’s single would score Robert Mackie who got the start at third base in the contest to give the Majors the lead.
After the team had 3 rainouts in their last 4 games it will be a busy week for the team will face the Welland Jackfish on Wednesday night before a weekend with the Barrie Baycats at home and the Jackfish and Panthers on the road.
