Hamilton and Kitchener met up at Bernie Arbour Stadium in IBL action on Friday night. Unfortunately, Mother Nature also showed up and shortened the game between the teams with the Panthers taking the win by a score of 10-5 after five and a half innings of play. Yorkis Borroto and Sean Reilly each had home runs for the visiting Panthers while Jon Dziomba hit a home run of his own and Jacob Sims went two for two at the plate for the Cardinals.

Kitchener opened the scoring in the first, plating two runs in the inning coming off a bases loaded walk and a wild pitch. The Panthers stretched their lead to three runs in the second when Reilly singled to score Mike Andrulis who reached base on a walk. Kitchener looked like they might have been able to score another run but Mike Hart made a wall crashing catch to rob Borroto of at least a double.

Hart then led off the home half of the inning with a single and later scored on Sims’ first hit of the game.

In the third, each team would score a run. Jake Foden doubled to in the bottom of the third then scores on Chris Beer’s single to make the score 4-2.

Kitchener then broke the door open, scoring four times in the fourth. The Cardinals would respond right away when Logan Stewart, who opened the inning with a double, scored on Sims’ double.

However, in the next half, Reilly would hit a two-run home run to make it a 10-3 lead for the visitors. But the reigning IBL Batter of the Week wouldn’t let Reilly have all the fun, as Dziomba would his a two-run home run of his own in the bottom of the fifth.

The Cardinals would keep Kitchener off the board in the sixth before the umpires suspended play due to the weather. With it not clearing up anytime soon the game was called and ruled a completed game.

For Hamilton, Nick Virdo took the loss, going four innings, allowing eight runs, one of which was unearned, on five hits, walking nine batters and striking out two. Kyle Adoranti would come in to pitch to start the fifth inning, allowing two runs on one hit, walking two batters and striking out one. Ben Reid would pitch the sixth inning, allowing a hit and striking out two batters.

For the Panthers, Noelvis Entenza picked up the win going five innings, allowing five runs on ten hits, walking one and striking out two.

Hamilton will return to the scene of their last victory at Nelson Park on Saturday afternoon when they face the Burlington Herd starting at 1:05 PM. The team then face the Kitchener Panthers once again on Sunday afternoon to make up a rained-out game from earlier in the season starting at 2:00 PM on Hamilton Challenger Baseball Association Day.

The Hamilton Cardinals and Buffalo Wild Wings are teaming up to raise funds for the Special Olympics Hamilton Softball team. At the Stoney Creek location of Buffalo Wild Wings at 524 Centennial Parkway between 6 and 8 PM on Monday July 10th to eat wings and raise funds. Members of the Cardinals will be special guest servers and 10 percent of the bill will be donated to the Special Olympics Hamilton Softball team.
