GAME RECAP: Baycats Continue Win Streak With Road Win Over Red Sox
BRANTFORD - The Barrie Baycats started their road trip with a big win on Friday night, beating the Brantford Red Sox 13-2 at Arnold Anderson Stadium.
Both the pitching and the batting were excellent for the Baycats in this game; starter Evan Soules (1-0) pitched five strong innings, giving up only three hits and one run. Relievers Adam Khan, Max Lojko, and Brad Grieveson were all excellent out of the bullpen for manager Josh Matlow.
James Anderson and Tyler Plumpton both reached base five times in this one for Barrie. Anderson scored three runs, and Plumpton had three RBI. Baycats batters as a group took advantage of a general lack of command from the four Red Sox pitchers - the team walked nine times.
Owen Jansen, who had three RBI as well, hit a massive triple on a pitch that just missed leaving the park. (it was an inside-the-park home run to the eye, scored as a triple because of an error). Shortstop Carson Burns had three RBI and hit two doubles.
The biggest inning for the Baycats was the sixth - the team batted around and scored eight runs. Bennett Moore (0-4) got the loss in this game. With the win, the Baycats improve to 8-6 on the season.
NEXT GAME: On Sunday, the Baycats continue their road trip and face the London Majors for the second time this season.
PLAYER OF THE GAME: Tyler Plumpton won tonight's player of the game, but James Anderson deserves it as well - what a game from both of them!
