Welland Jackfish at Brantford Red Sox
June 2, 2019 - Arnold Anderson Stadium
The Brantford Red Sox (1-5) faced the Welland Jackfish (3-3) for the second time this season. Brantford was coming off a tough 9-1 loss in Kitchener the day before and looking to rebound in front of their hometown crowd. Today a pitcher's duel would ensue.
Brady Cappe made his 2nd start for the Sox. He put forth an amazing effort, striking out 10 Welland batters while surrendering just 5 hits and allowing no runs in 6 complete innings pitched. Brantford was unable to provide Cappe with any run support however, and he would leave the game with a no decision.
Victor Mueses took over on the mound in the 7th inning and proved just as dominant, striking out 7 while allowing just one hit. Unfortunately a pair of walks and stolen bases in the 9th inning, paired with an error on the stolen base attempt allowed Welland to score a run. Brantford was unable to match it in the bottom of the 9th, final score Welland 1 Brantford 0.
Brantford's struggles as a team at the plate continued today. Luis Perez led the Sox with 2 hits, with Nick Burdett, Chris Iltshishin and Toure Parpit-Sinclair each contributing a hit. Despite this, Brantford did only strike out 4 times total on the day.
