FOURTH INNING SINKS CARDINALS

Posted on Jun 6, 2016 by Mike Marasco

Hamilton jumped out to an early three run lead on London but a ten run fourth inning would power the Majors to a 15-5 win in IBL action at Bernie Arbour on Friday night. Marcus Dicenzo had a pair of hits for the Cardinals on the night while new pitcher Russ Burroughs pitched three relief innings, allowing just one run. For London, Byron Reichstein had four hits and seven RBIs in the game.

After a scoreless first inning, Hamilton jumped on the board first in the bottom of the second. Dre Celestijn, playing his first game of the season, and Connor Bowie hit back to back singles with Bowie moving up to second on an error. Jake Foden would then hit a sacrifice fly to centre to allow Celestijn to score. Bowie would also come in to score in the inning, taking advantage of a passed ball.

In the third the Cardinals added another run as Dicenzo, who singled to open the inning, moved around the bases on a Geoffrey Seto ground out and a pair of wild pitches to make it a 3-0 lead for Hamilton.

London would then take over the game as they sent 14 batters to the plate in the fourth inning, scoring ten runs in the frame. Cleveland Brownlee led off the inning with a solo home run. Keith Kandel would later hit a two out single that tied the score at three before Reichstein doubled to clear the bases and bring in three runs.

The Majors would also add four runs in the fifth as Reichstein hit a grand slam to right that put the game out of reach.

Hamilton would get a pair of runs back in the seventh when Chris Beer doubled to cash in Jason de Vos and Jake Osborne who had each hit singles to open the inning. London added one more run in the eighth to make the final 15-5.

For the Cardinals, Kyle Adoranti took the loss, going three and a third innings, allowing five runs on four hits, five walks while striking out two. TJ Baker took over in the fourth and lasted two-thirds of an inning, allowing five runs on six hits and striking out a pair of batters. Benson Merritt pitched the fifth, allowing four runs on three hits, a walk and striking out one.

Hamilton then summoned Burroughs, the team’s newest signee. He would go three strong innings, allowing one run on three hits, walking two and striking out one. Lake Molleson pitched the final inning, walking two and striking out one of five batters he faced.

For London, Owen Boon got the win, going six innings, allowing three runs on six hits, walking one batter and striking out five. Ben Runyon was given the save as he went three innings, allowing two runs on three hits while fanning four batters.
