Majors explode in the first 4 innings for 16 runs
With the smell of ribs from Ribfest at Victoria Park coming down Riverside road the Majors took on 403 rival Brantford Red Sox. The Majors did not hold back in this one as they dominated 13-4.
Jordan Shulefand got his second start as a Majors pitcher and he would have his best outing as well. Shulefand would go 7 innings in the contest while striking out 10 Red Sox, only allowing 4 runs on 7 hits. Braeden Ferrington who was coming off his roughest outing on August 1st gave up 5 runs vs the Royals. Things were different on Saturday as Ferrington pitched 2 innings, striking out 1 while not giving up a single hit.
Drew Lawrence and Eduardo De Oleo were the Majors’ offensive catalysts vs the Sox as De Oleo hit a 3-run home run in the 4th while Lawrence added a double which scored 2 runs later in the inning. Dan Battel and Starling Joseph also had multiple RBIs in the game. Kayne McGee has come alive lately as since July 23rd he has had a hit in each of the 7 contests while also scoring 3 RBIs while dominating defensively making difficult plays look easy.
The regular season is coming down to an end soon as the team has 10 games left including a pair of home games this week vs the Cardinals and Panthers. The team will finish the weekend off though with an afternoon matchup vs the Leafs in Toronto on Sunday. Tickets for all matchups at home can be purchased online at www.majorsstore.com.
