RED SOX SLIP PAST CARDINALS

Posted on Jul 4, 2017 by Mike Marasco

Hamilton and the Brantford Red Sox met for the second time this week, this time at Bernie Arbour Stadium in IBL action on Sunday afternoon. Jake Foden, Chris Beer and TJ Baker would combine for seven of the Cardinals’ 11 hits on the day while Brantford’s Nic Burdett led the way with a three-run home run on the way to a 9-7 win.

The home side got on the board first in the third inning. Logan Stewart and Nate Mastervick each drew walks which were followed up by a single by Foden to load up the bases. Beer then singled to open the scoring. Hamilton would get a second run across the plate in the frame when Mastervick scored on Mike Hart’s sacrifice fly.

The lead didn’t last long though as Brantford scored four times in the top of the fourth with Benjamin Bostick scoring on a Chris Dennis RBI single and Burdett’s three-run home run. The Red Sox extended their lead in the fifth, adding a run on a Bostick single and a Dan Jagdeo fielder’s choice.

Hamilton responded in their half of the fifth when Mastervick single and moved up on a passed ball before Foden drove him in. Later in the inning Hart would hit a sacrifice fly to centre which allowed Foden to score. The Cardinals added another run in the seventh as Foden hit a one out double then scored on Beer’s single to make it a one run game.

Brantford put the game out of reach in the eighth, scoring three times in the inning while sending nine batters to the plate. They could have had more runs but a Beer diving stop allowed one run to score and left the bases load instead of a second run coming in on the play.

The Cardinals would go on to add a run in each of the eight and ninth innings coming from a TJ Baker solo home run and Hart RBI single.

For Hamilton, Dan Weagle took the loss, going five innings on the mound, allowing six runs, one of which was unearned, on five hits and four walks. Chris Lazar relieved Weagle to start the sixth innings, allowing three runs on two hits, walking three and striking out three over two and two-thirds innings. Ben Reid pitched the final inning and third, allowing a hit, a walk and picking up a strikeout.

For the Red Sox, David Hatt pitched the first three innings, allowing two runs on two hits, walking two and striking out three. Matt Betts would pick up the win in relief of Hatt, allowing a hit and striking out one over one inning. Tanner Guindon and Dalton Harvey each would pitch two innings each allowed two runs on two hits with Guindon striking out two and Harvey walking a batter and striking out one. Stefan Strecker earned the save, allowing one run on two hits and striking out three in the ninth inning.

Hamilton will play four games this coming week, facing the Burlington Herd twice at Nelson Park and the Kitchener Panthers twice at Bernie Arbour. The first game is Thursday night starting at 7:15 in Burlington and then the following night at home against the Panthers starting at 7:30 PM.
