Majors split double dip vs Panthers
If you wanted an interesting game, Friday night was the night for that. With the completion of the May 20th game and the regularly scheduled game changed to a 7-inning game, mother nature wanted to have both teams play late into the night.
Picking up mid-5th with a full count, Bo Lewington would go out and throw 1 pitch to record the out. It would be a back-and-forth game before the Majors would bring the tying game to the 3rd base with both Cleveland Brownlee and Kieran Bowles but could not get the run across and would fall 11-10.
Game 2 would start a lot later than expected as mother nature's delay pushed the first pitch till 9:25 pm. Jose Arias would start on the mound dominating the Panthers lineup with 10 strikeouts in the game. The Majors would take the bats that were hot in game one and get out to a quick 5-0 lead that included Cleveland Brownlee putting a ball into the Thames River. Newly arrived Gibson Krzeminski would also play a critical part in both games going 1-1 with a walk and a hit in both games while also scoring a run while also hitting 2nd spot in the lineup. After a short rain delay, the Majors would come out in the 4th inning and have every batter in the lineup come across and score 11 runs. Cleveland Brownlee would destroy his second home run of the game. Jordan Spring would come in for the 7th to finish the night/morning baseball off.
