After a big win on the scoreboard, the Majors were in Barrie looking for another big win in the standings! It would be a successful game for the Majors as they would win 9-
With league ERA leader Jose Arias on the mound, the Majors were able to dominate on both sides of the ball! Arias would pitch 7 innings as he continued his dominant season. Getting a total of 8 strikeouts in the game while only allowing 2 and 7 hits. Pedro De Los Santos would come into the game in the 8th with 2 strikeouts and a pop-up. De Los Santos would finish with 2 innings pitched, 4 strikeouts and 0 hits.
After a first-inning, 2-run home run by Robert Mullen (his 13th of the season), both teams would be kept quiet by the starting pitching before Starling Joseph would drive in 3 runs on a home run. Byron Reichstein who hasn’t had a home run since his return to the Majors would go back to back with Joseph to give the Majors a 6-1 lead. The 6th inning would also be a big inning as well as the Majors had 3 runs as well as Taylor Wright would drive in Keith Kandel before Cleveland Brownlee would put some more distance between him and teammate Robert Mullen for the league lead in RBIs as he drove in Newton and Kandel giving him 49 RBIs on the season.
Another big win for the Majors as they head into the final stretch. An afternoon game tomorrow as they travel to Kitchener to take on the Panthers before returning to Labatt Park on Friday evening to take on the Royals. Tickets can be purchased online at www.londonmajors.com or at the gate on game day.
