Majors Split the 2 Games vs the Panthers
It was a tale of two games for the Majors on Friday night. With the completion of a rain-out game from July 24th that was suspended in the bottom of the 4th inning followed by a full 7 inning game right after. Both would be very different.
The completion of the July 24th game would start up with the Majors atbat and Adam Filmon at bat. Quickly the Majors would add to their 12-3 lead with Filmon scoring on a double by Keith Kandel before Kandel moved over on an error by the catcher. McQueen would lead the team with 4 RBIs in this game(1 in the evening). Braeden Ferrington would pitch the final innings and would have 3 strikeouts in the evening(4 in total for the game).
After a short break, the Majors would look to grow their lead in the standings with Pedro De Los Santos on the bump facing Christian Hauk for the Panthers. The Panthers would score one but have it quickly answered in the first inning as the Majors would score 2 in the bottom of the inning followed by taking the lead in the bottom of the third in the 7 inning game. It would be a quiet game until the Panthers would take control of the game scoring 3 runs in the top of the 6th inning. Hauk for the Panthers would shut the Majors offence down the rest of the game and throw a complete 7 inning game.
During the game, the Majors also found out that first baseman Josh Williams will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL, a partial tear of his PCL. When asking Williams about his injury he was very positive about his situation “From the beginning, the boys have been nothing but supportive. I am looking forward to getting the surgery so that I can begin the recovery process. I’ll be back and I can’t wait to be out there again with the solid group we have. Until then I’ll be supporting as much as I can. This 2021 team is one that Majors fans will remember for a long time”
Tomorrow night the Majors will take on the Barrie Baycats at 7:30 in Barrie before taking on the Kitchener Panthers again in Kitchener on Sunday.
