LATE ERRORS ENDS CARDINALS SEASON

Posted on Aug 10, 2016 by Mike Marasco

Hamilton held a one run lead as they headed to the sixth inning but five errors over the next two innings which allowed the Kitchener Panthers to score eight runs and take game four 11-4 and advance to the second round of the Intercounty Baseball League playoffs on Tuesday night. Hamilton’s starting pitcher Chris Lazar would allow just three runs and one extra base hit to the potent Kitchener lineup while Tyler Hardie and Geoff Seto each had a pair of hits for the Cardinals. For the Panthers, four batters would have two or more hits in the game.

The teams would be held off the board in the first three innings. The Cardinals looked to of got on the board in the bottom of the third when Dre Celestijn doubled but the Panthers were able to throw out Liam Wilson at the plate.

Kitchener opened the scoring in the top of the fourth as Terrell Alliman, Justin Interisano and Frank Camilo Morejon hit back to back to back one out singles with Alliman scoring on the final single. Later in the frame Mike Glinka would double which scored Interisano. Morejon also scored on the play but Hamilton was able to throw him out at the plate and end the inning.

Chris Beer would cut the Kitchener lead in half in the Cardinals half of the fourth when he hit a one out solo home run to left field. The Panthers regained their two run lead in their next at bat when Gordner hit a sac fly to center to score Tanner Nivins who had opened the inning with a single.

Hamilton would get right back into it in their half of the inning. Seto would open the inning up with a single and then move to second on Celestijn’s walk. Hardie would then double down the third base line to cash in Seto. TJ Baker would follow that up with an RBI single to tie the game at three before Beer reached on a fielder’s choice which allowed Hardie to cross the plate and give the Cardinals the lead.

However, Hamilton would start making errors in the field which saw the Panthers take advantage of, scoring four times in each of the sixth and seventh innings on their way to the win.

For the Cardinals, Lazar went four and two thirds innings, allowing three runs, one of which was unearned, on seven hits, walking two and striking out one without picking up a decision. Jonathan Palumbo would take the loss in relief of Lazar, going an inning and a third, allowing six runs, half of which were unearned, om two hits and four walks. Russ Burroughs would then come into the game, pitching an inning. He would allow two runs, one of which was earned, on three hits and a walk. Benson Merritt and Kyle Adoranti would each pitch an inning with Merritt allowing a hit and Adoranti allowing a walk.

For Kitchener, David Whiteside picked up the win, going five and a third innings, allowing four runs on eight hits, walking four and striking out three. Matt Vickers would come in and finish off the sixth inning, allowing a hit and a walk. Iannick Remillard, Andrew Simonetti and Phil Owner each pitched an inning to finish off the game with Remillard allowing the only hit over the final three innings.

The Kitchener Panthers will move on to face an opponent that is still to be determined in the semi-finals of the 2016 IBL playoffs while many of the Cardinals players will prepare to head back to their school for the upcoming collegiate season.
