The London Majors earned their fourth straight win in Intercounty Baseball League action on Tuesday night.  The Majors remain undefeated by defeating the Chatham Barnstormers in a wild high-scoring affair at Fergie Jenkins Field by a score of 15-12.

Daniel Gore got the start on the mound for the Majors, followed by Jaryd Lund in the third inning. Lund threw 4 2/3 innings to earn himself the win. Skylar Janisse and Braeden Ferrington finished up the last two innings to secure the 15-12 win. 

London field manager Roop Chanderdat had this to say about Tuesday night's win, ¨It wasn’t our best game, but the boys did enough to get the win. Jaryd Lund battled, and he gave us a chance. Wins are hard to get, and we will take this one.¨The Majors' 15 runs came on 14 hits and two Chatham errors. Eduardo De Oleo homered twice. Kaiden Cardoso and Champ Garner each added a home run. De Oleo and Cardoso both now have three home runs on the season for a share of the IBL home run lead. London scored in every inning but the third and ninth. Their big inning was the fourth inning where they scored six runs.
¨We had a couple of big innings. Then we just wanted to keep adding a run or two per inning." Chanderdat added, "After that De Ole, Garner, and Cardoso chipped in with big flies.¨Starling Joseph had three hits on the night. Eduardo De Oleo, Byron Reichstein, Victor Plaz, and Champ Garner had two hits each. Andrew Lawerence, Kaiden Cardoso, and Tommy Reyes-Cruz added one hit each.

The Majors will bring their 4-0 record back home to Labatt Park on Friday, May 24th when they take on the Kitchener Panthers in a 7:35 P. M. start.
