Baycats Fell Behind Early, Rallied Late to Beat Cardinals

Midhurst | by Ken Hashizume  

A bat-around 6-run sixth inning helped Barrie to their 9th straight win.


It seems any deficit is no problem for the Barrie Baycats.

For the second straight game, the Baycats fell behind early on but rallied late to beat the Hamilton Cardinals 9-5 on Saturday night for their ninth win in a row.

The Baycats found themselves down 5-2 when they scored six times in the bottom of the sixth inning to take an 8-5 lead.

That inning saw the Baycats (23-8) send 10 men to the plate with the first six reaching base.

After a shaky start, Matt St.Kitts (8 IP, 5 R, 2 ER, 10 H, BB, 6 K) managed to finish strong retiring the last seven batters he faced.

Jordan Castaldo (2-for-5, 2 2B, 2 R, RBI) and Kyle DeGrace (2-for-5, 2 2B, R, 2 RBI) each had a pair of doubles while Ryan Spataro (1-for-4, HR, 2 R) homered.

Zack Gonzalez had 3 hits (3-for-4), scored a run, and drove in a pair for the Cardinals (12-17).

Josh Freeman took the loss going 5 innings (plus 6 batters) giving up 8 runs (6 earned) on 10 hits, and walking 4.

Barrie committed 4 errors in the game, Hamilton had one.

The next game for the Baycats is Sunday afternoon when they travel to London to face the Majors.
