Majors score 8 straight runs to secure victory over Jackfish
Sometimes in the game of baseball, it is not how you start but how you finish. The Majors were reminded that on Saturday night in Welland. With the Majors down 4-0 after the first inning, the Majors would storm back to victory 14-6.
Jose Arias came into this game with an ERA of 0.41 but did not start this game the way he or the team would want to, giving up 5 runs in the first 2 innings before settling down and striking out 8 and not allowing a run after the 2nd inning. Fernando Fernandez would pitch the 7th inning getting 3 flyouts. Bo Lewington would come in for a scoreless 8th inning with 2 more fly outs and a ground out before the former New York Yankee Cesar Cabral would get the final 3 outs in the game.
The Majors’ offence would take an inning to get going before they would score at least one run in every inning from the 2nd inning on. With a single by 1st baseman Dan Perrier and a double by Drew Lawrence the Majors would come within 1 run in the 2nd. With an error in the 3rd the Majors would still trail 1 but would be short-lived as a sac fly, single in the 4th and 5th it would give the Majors a 7-5 lead. Every Majors’ starter in the game would enjoy the trip to the pond as all 9 batters would have a hit in this game. The 6th inning would be a big inning for the Majors as Starling Joseph, Gibson Krezminski and Keith Kandel would drive in 4 runs in the inning to increase the lead to 11-6. The Majors would continue the scoring, getting a run by Robert Mullen, Jakob Newton & Keith Kandel bringing the total to 14 runs, the second time in 2 games the Majors would score double digits on the Jackfish.
