Majors drop second in a row
A Saturday trip down the 401 to take on the for the Majors as they took on the Royals looking to avoid back to back losses. The Majors would end up falling 5-4 on a walk off.
Majors ace Owen Boon would have an unusual start allowing 4 runs in the second inning putting the Majors behind early on in back to back games. The Majors bounced back in the top of the third with runs driven in by Jakob Newton, Cleveland Brownlee and Robert Mullen. Unfortunately the Majors would face the top pitcher in the league Custodio who is on pace to break a league record for the most strikeouts in a season adding 12 more to his total over 8 innings pitched.
Boon would settle down going 5.2 IP striking out 9 leaving the game with a no decision. Majors reliever Ceaser Cabral would come out with 1 out in the 6th inning getting 2 strike outs not allowing any runs. Cabral would go 1.2 inning getting all of his outs on strike outs for a dominant performance. Former Royal Fernando Fernandez would continue the dynomite performance out of the pen getting 3 flyouts of 3 batters faced in the inning. The Majors would not be allowed to add a run in the top of the 9th and the Royals would be able to send their fans home happy with a walk off to end the game.
Majors are back at it tomorrow for a night cap vs the Jackfish and look to snap the mini 2 game losing streak. Tickets and be purchased at www.londonMajors.com. Let’s let the know the Jack Fish know who’s house their in!
