Red Sox Outmatched By Majors

by B. Young

BRANTFORD - For the second night in a row the Brantford Red Sox failed to convert in a few key situations, and the scoreboard reflected similar results.

Brantford hung in with the defending IBL Champions from London for the first 5 innings, trailing just 3-1. But the Red Sox missed out on big opportunities to score, most notably with bases loaded and just 1 out in the 4th inning - mirroring the exact same situation from Friday night vs. Guelph. London would go on to score 4 runs in the 6th inning, including the eventual game winner, on their way to a 12-6 win.

FOR BRANTFORD - Starter Kendri Salvador was charged with the loss, going 6 complete innings while surrendering 7 runs (5 earned) on 8 hits. Salvador pitched very well through 5 innings against a London lineup that can hit top to bottom. But as has been the trend this season, the Red Sox should have gone to the bullpen just a bit sooner. Jacob Lupton pitched a clean 9th for Brantford, striking out 1. Brodie Mackay led the charge at the plate for Brantford with 3 hits and an RBI. Jamiel Orozco had a pair of hits, and Roger Keen also contributed a pair of hits including his 2nd home run of the season, a 2 run shot. Brantford left 8 runners on base. 

NEXT UP - Brantford gets a rare Sunday off this week, and aren't back in action until Wednesday night when they host the Welland Jackfish, 8 pm start time at Arnold Anderson Stadium.
