Big Inning Eludes Brantford In Loss To Guelph
BRANTFORD - The good news is that Brantford Red Sox did better at the plate than the last time they faced the Guelph Royals 6 days ago, when they mustered up just 2 hits in a 9-0 loss. And Brantford also fared better than last night in Barrie where they combined for just 3 total hits. The bad news is that they failed to put together the hits and baserunners at the right time to find themselves in the win column yet again.
Guelph took a 3-0 lead into the home half of the 4th inning, when Brantford's opportunity to put up a big inning presented itself. But with bases full and just 1 out, the Sox would leave 'em loaded, and with it their chances to win the ballgame. Brantford would put base runners on in every inning except the 3rd, but converted them to just 4 runs scored while stranding 14 on base. Final score was Guelph 10 Brantford 4.
FOR BRANTFORD - Jesse Fishbaum had 3 hits on the night and 2 RBI. Liam Sutherland got on base 3 times - once via hit, and twice via hit by pitch, and also stole a base. Jamiel Orozco and Andre Wojtarowicz also contributed a pair of hits each, with Wojtarowicz also reaching base on a hit by pitch.
NEXT UP - Brantford is right back at it on Saturday night, hosting the London Majors. Game time is 8 pm at Arnold Anderson Stadium, and admittance is FREE for all fans courtesy of the Brantford Red Sox.
