Majors losing streak snapped in win over Panthers
With a little Ja Rule and Aqua playing across the river, the Majors took on the Kitchener Panthers looking to snap their 3-game losing streak. After a back and forth affair the Majors would snap the streak with a 7-6 victory.
With Owen Boon going, the Western grad would get 10 strikeouts while 5 earned runs over 5.1 innings before running into some trouble in the top of the 6th where he would have the bases loaded and have to turn things over to Braeden Ferrington to limit the Panthers' damage. Ferrington Would have another successful outing as he shut down the Panthers allowing only 1 hit over 3.1 innings of work.
The Majors came into the bottom of the first inning down 1 run but it didn’t take long for Austin Wilkie to change that as on the second pitch of the game for Brett Reid, Wilkie would take the offering over centerfield. With a tie game, Jakob Newton would give the Majors the lead quickly with his 2nd home run of the season. After 2 runs by the Panthers in the 3rd, the Majors would have a big inning, with a double by Gibson Krzeminski while Dan Perrier would have an infield single that Krezminski would score from second on. Krezminski would have himself a game, teaming up with the speed of Starling Joseph, and the Majors would get the lead on a single.
Overall the Majors were in a hard-fought game while Ferrington would have his best outing of the season. The Majors are back in action back at home on Saturday night with a visit from the Cardinals on Pride night. Tickets can be purchased online at www.londonmajors.com
