Majors Sweep The Baycats Doubleheader
After a suspended game last night vs the Kitchener Panthers, the Majors were in for a long day vs the Barrie Baycats in a 7 inning doubleheader on Sunday.
In the first game, the majors started things off perfectly with Owen Boon mowing down the order 1-2-3, allowing Humberto Ruiz to score Carlos Arteaga, from second. Boon would continue his dominant season with a total of 6 innings with 7 hits allowing 2 runs while striking out 5. Those 2 runs would be scored in the 4th inning before the Majors went off and scored 3 more runs by Johnson, Wilkie and McQueen. Jaryd Lund would come in for the 7th inning recording his first career save of his young IBL career.
The second game would be started by the 2-way phenom Hayden Jaco who continued his hitting streak (7) in the first game of the doubleheader and would end up going 3 innings striking out 5 before turning it over to Braeden Ferrington who would go 2 innings only giving up 1 run (unearned). Lund would come in to face 3 left-handed batters only walking 1 before turning it over to Mike Delong recording his first save of the season striking out 2 in an inning and 2 thirds.
After a busy weekend where they played three and a half games (Kitchener suspended in the bottom of the third inning due to rain), the Majors will enjoy 5 days off before taking on the Welland Jackfish on Friday then the Hamilton Cardinals on Saturday with both games at home.
