Mother Nature holds off as Majors are victorious over Cardinals
With mother nature recking havoc with the rain early in the morning, the Majors travelled down to Hamilton to take on the Cardinals on a hot, humid, muggy, windy Sunday. All things mother nature could throw at both teams would not hold the Majors back from extending the win streak to 6 with a 10-3 victory.
Owen Boon was out on the mound for the Majors to close out the weekend going 6 innings and only having 2 hits against him while shutting down the Cardinals offence with 0 runs and 9 strikeouts. Bo Lewington would come in to pitch the 7th inning getting a fly-out and 2 groundouts while allowing 2 runs. Anderson Acevedo would look to bounce back after his outing last night in Brantford, Acevedo would get a strikeout in a clean inning. Daniel Gore who had his first save on Friday would come in and pitch the 9th, getting a double play while allowing 1 run in the frame.
Another offensive explosion for the Majors as 8 of 9 starters would have a hit in the game and 5 different Majors would have an RBI. Things got started by Cleveland Brownlee would have a single that would drive in Robert Mullen, adding to Brownlee’s league-leading RBI numbers. In the 4th inning Austin Wilkie, Jakob Newton and Cleveland would all have hits that would drive in 4 runs. For the second day in a row, Dan Perrier who got the start at 1st base again would take the ball deep over the fence for his 5th home run of the season (3rd against the Cardinals). Robert Mullen who had not had a home run lately had a solo shot in the 6th inning giving the Majors a 10-0 lead in the 6th. In the top of the 9th inning with the Majors leading 10-2, Braeden Ferrington would come in to replace Drew Lawrence striking out and playing the bottom of the 9th in left field.
The Majors come home and will hit the field for practice before taking on the same Hamilton Cardinals on Friday night with Hall of Fame legend Fergie Jenkins in house before travelling to Kitchener for a doubleheader to make up for a rained out game earlier this year on Sunday.
