BAYCATS DROP SECOND STRAIGHT IN LOSS TO LONDON
BARRE — An early game pitchers duel turned into a 7-3 defeat at the hands of the London Majors for the Barrie Baycats. With the loss, Barrie finishes their 4-game season-opening home stand at 2-2.
The game started off great as the Baycats would get the game's first run on a sac fly from Adam Odd. Baycats starter Emilis Guerrero pitched well, giving up 4 runs but only 2 earned with 6 strikeouts through 6 innings. Guerrero was the losing pitcher in the game (1).
Unfortunately, those 4 runs in the 6th inning were the difference. It started with a 2-run home run by Majors outfielder Starling Joseph. An out and 2 base runners later, Daniel Battel drove in 2 with a double to make it 4-1.
The Baycats bullpen kept the game close in the 7th and 8th innings with Adam Khan and Brandon Hillier each tossing scoreless frames. The offense got the Cats within a run in the 6th after two run-scoring doubles by Adam Odd and Dom Morea.
But in the 9th, London would grab 3 big add-on runs thanks to a solo home run by Keith Kandel and a 2-run home run by Eduardo de Oleo. The Majors hit 3 home runs en route to victory.
Other than a few errors early on, Barrie’s defense was amazing late in the game. Adam Odd who was good offensively made some great charging plays at shortstop. Dom Morea also had a nice play making a diving stop to rob Tommy Reyes Cruz.
Edisson Gonzalez was the winning pitcher for the London Majors making him 1-1 on the season. Braeden Ferrington picked up the save (1).
