Majors finish off Cardinals to move on to Finals
On a rare Friday night on the road for the Majors, it was game 4 in the steel city as the Majors looked to move on to the finals for the second time in a row. After a few big innings, the Majors were able to take the series 3-1 with a 10-4 win.
With Jose Arias on the mound, it would be business as usual for Arias going 7 innings with 11 strikeouts while not allowing a single walk. Arias did also manage to allow only 2 earned runs of the 4 runs in the game. Braeden Ferrington came into the game for the final two innings of the game, striking out 1 while allowing 1 hit.
The Majors' bats came alive in this game as Cleveland Brownlee hit a 2 run home run in the first inning and the team did not look back from there. Jakob Newton hit a big double in the third inning to increase the lead. The big inning came in the 6th when 4 runs came across scored by Reichstein, Krezminski and Newton. Austin Wilkie scored Byron Reichstein prior to Keith Kandel hitting a big home run in the 8th. Offensively the Majors scored 10 runs on 14 hits while walking twice.
The schedule for the finals will be announced as soon as it is finalized. Please keep your eyes on social media and the Majors Newsletter.
