Orillia | by Ken Hashizume  

Aurora came from behind to beat the Majors 5-2 taking semis in 5.

The Orillia Majors are out of the North Dufferin League playoffs as Aurora rallied late to beat the Majors in Game 5 of their semi final series.

Chris Bloom's 2-run double ignited a 4-run, 6th inning for the Jays as they came from behind for a 5-2 victory on Tuesday night to win the best-of-five semi final series 3-2.

The Majors got off to a 1-0 lead on an R-B-I single by Nathan Dix in the 1st inning.

Orillia went up 2-0 in the 3rd on an R-B-I single by Jeff Schilling.

Adam Hendy pitched well for the first five innings but ran into trouble in the 6th and was stuck with the loss.

Schilling, Matt Richardson, and Scott Seymour each collected 2 hits in the game for the Majors.

Ian Milne went the distance for Aurora giving up 2 runs on 9 hits for the win.

The Jays will now face the Bolton Brewers for the league championship starting next week.
