Majors get second win of the weekend in Brantford
In what felt like the middle of July, the Majors went into Brantford for their last game in May and left with an 8-2 victory.
Owen Boon would get his 3rd start of the season and would continue his dominance bringing his record to 3-0 with 24 strikeouts already in 20 innings with only 3 walks. Majors rookie Jordan Spring would come in for the 7th inning for his first appearance in the IBL. Spring would get a pop, followed by a single then would induce a double play started by himself. Fernando Fernandez would also come out of the pen today getting a rebound inning as he would face 4 batters in the inning with 1 strikeout before handing it over to Brock Badgers stand-out Connor Ambrogio who would close the inning out with a strike out.
The offence continued what they started last night in Barrie as they put up 4 runs in the 5th inning including a Starling Joseph 3-run home run. The Majors would get solo RBIs from Cleveland, McQueen and, Kandel while Taylor Wright would also have 2 RBIs in the contest. In 5 games this season, the Majors have had at least 1 home run in each game (including the suspended game vs Kitchener on May 20th)
The Majors are off till Friday night when former Majors and MLB all-star Fergie Jenkins will make his first return to Labatt Park since his jersey retirement when the Majors take on the Maple Leafs. Tickets are available online at Londonmajors.com
