Majors roll for 5-3 win
For the second time in 7 days, the Majors travelled to take on the Baycats looking for their 5th win in a row for the first time this season.
The Majors would get things started in the second inning with DH Nick Carrell who was in for Cleveland Brownlee who got only his second game off this season. Carrell would drive in Robert Doyle from second for the opening run of the game. It would not be the only runs of the game though as Adam Filmon would continue his first season in London with a single to right field that would score Hayden Jacon before Keith Kandel would drive in another outfielder in Austin Wilkie in before the end of the 4th inning. Carlos Arteaga would be involved in the last 2 where he would drive Chris McQueen in before Adam Filmon would score him on a error by the second baseman.
Pedro De Los Santos would try to match his teammate Owen Boon who pitched 7 scoreless innings on Friday. Pedro would go 6.2 innings striking out 7 and only allowing 3 earned runs on 9 hits. In the 7th inning Roop Chanderdat would take the ball from him turning it over to Eduardo Perez who arrived Saturday at Pearson Airport while arrived at the ball diamond 1 hour into the game. Perez would go 2.1 innings facing 10 batters not giving up a hit while striking out 2. With the 5-1 win the Majors are able to stretch their winning record to 5 games.
