Posted on Jul 9, 2016 by Mike Marasco

For Hamilton, Liam Wilson had three hits and three runs batted in while Sean Reilly, Justin Interisano and David Whiteside all had home runs in the win.

Tanner Nivins and Mike Glinka lead off the game with back to back singles then scored on Reilly’s three-run home run, his 156th career home run. Interisano would then draw a walk before the Cardinals would get Terrell Alliman out on a pop up for the first out. Whiteside then capped off the inning with a two-run home run.

Hamilton would get one run back in the bottom half of the opening inning. Liam Wilson would get a one out single and move up 90-feet when Tyler Hardie grounded out to second base. Dre Celestijn would then single which would allow Liam to score. Interisano would get that run and one more right back for the Panthers in the second when he hit a two-run home run which also scored Reilly who was hit by a pitch.

The Cardinals cut into the Kitchener lead in the third. Marcus Dicenzo and Jake Foden led off with back to back singles then more up a base on Geoff Seto’s ground out. Liam Wilson would then bring in a run on a ground out to third. With two outs in the inning Hardie, Celestijn and Chris Beer would all hit singles with Hardie and Beer picking up RBIs to make it a 7-4 game.

Kitchener would go on to add four runs in the fourth, two in the fifth and one in the seventh while Hamilton picked up a run in the fifth when Beer reached base on an error with two outs that allowed Liam Wilson to score. The Cardinals added two more late runs in the ninth when Liam Wilson doubled the runners.

For the Cardinals, Robert Wilson took the loss going one inning plus two batters in the second, allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks. Chris Lazar came in to take over on the hill and went three innings, allowing six runs on six hits, walking one and striking out one. Kyle Adoranti would go the next three innings on the mound for Hamilton allowing an unearned run on three hits, walking three and striking out one. Jonathan Palumbo pitched the final two innings, allowing a hit and a walk while striking out two.

For Kitchener, Mitch Clark picked up the win going five innings, allowing five runs, one of which was unearned, on nine hits and striking out four.
