Hamilton made up a rained-out game from May with the Toronto Maple Leafs in Intercounty Baseball League action on Tuesday night. The Cardinals scored seven times in the first inning as they picked up their second win of the season. Connor Bowie led the charge with three hits and a stolen base for the home side while Kyle Adoranti picked up the win on the mound.

Nate Mastervick led off the home half of the first inning with a single and was followed by Chris Beer reaching on base when the Leafs’ right fielder dropped a fly ball. Bowie then loaded up the bases with a walk and TJ Baker cleared the bases with a double to put Hamilton on the board. Laine Renaud continued the hit parade with an RBI single.

David Vanderby later singled to load up the bases for the second time in the inning. Greg Marco then hit a single of his own to bring in the fifth run of the inning. Mastervick would make his second trip of the inning and hit a sacrifice fly which allowed another run to cross the plate. Before the first ended Beer singled and give the Cardinals a seven-run lead through one inning.

Toronto responded in the second inning when they scored twice off RBI singles from Damon Topolie and Adam Marra. Hamilton got those two runs back in the fifth inning when Jake Chiaravalle doubled to score two runs.

In the sixth, the Maple Leafs sent nine batters to the plate bringing in three runs. Zac Orchard singled the first run of the inning in and was followed by Topolie reaching base on an error to score a second run. Toronto capped off the inning with a runner crossing the plate on a wild pitch to make it 9-5. The Leafs would go on to add a run in the seventh and eighth innings but could not get any closer as the Cardinals earned their second victory of the season.

For Hamilton, Adoranti went six and a third innings for the win, allowing six runs on six hits, walking five and striking out two. Jake Foden finished off the final two and two-third innings, allowing a run on five hits and striking out one.

For the Maple Leafs, Andrew Mercer took the loss going three innings on the mound. Mercer would allow seven runs, four of which were earned, on six hits, walking two batters and striking out three. Mike Wagner pitched five relief innings, allowing two runs on seven hits, walking one and striking out six.

The Cardinals head to Kitchener on Thursday night to face the Panthers at Jack Couch Park. They will return home on Friday night to host the Burlington Herd. First pitch both nights is scheduled for 7:30 PM.
