A big inning helping the Barrie Baycats to a win in Intercounty Baseball action.

Jordan Castaldo capped an 8-run 5th inning with a grand slam as the Baycats went on to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 13-7 on Thursday night.
Toronto took a 1-0 lead in the top of the 1st inning on an R-B-I single by Jonathan Solazzo.
Barrie would tie it up at 1-1 in their half of the 2nd inning then grabbed a 3-1 lead with 2 runs in the 4th.
Baycats outfielder Ryan Spataro had a big night at the plate with 2 hits -- the first one was his 500th as a Baycat -- and driving in 3.
Castaldo, Brandon Dhue, and Stevie Lewis also had 2 hits a piece.
Sean Mattson went 3-for-5 with an R-B-I and a run scored for the Maple Leafs (3-2).

Dillion Mulholland took the loss for the Maple Leafs going 4-and-a-third innings giving up 7 runs (5 earned) on 6 hits and walking 6.
The next game for the Baycats (3-2) is Saturday afternoon when they travel to Burlington to play the Bandits.
