The Markdale Raiders sent the Shelburne Schooners to their first defeat of the season by a 10-2 count at Hyland Park.
Bill Carson and Justin Evans each smacked 3 hits and drove in 3 for Markdale. Carson whiffed 8 batters and recorded the complete game win.
Steve Townson stroked a home run for Shelburne.
Nate Elmore went the distance for the Schooners, taking the loss while recording 5 strikeouts.
This was the first game of the season for the Raiders after weather and wet fields played havoc with their early season schedule.
