Road sweep of Reds improves ‘Canes to 6-0

September 17, 2018

It was another strong showing for the Holland Hurricanes men’s baseball team this weekend when they visited the University of New Brunswick Reds for a double-header on Sunday.  The ‘Canes would use a seven-run fifth inning to win game one 16-6, before a four-run first inning in game two allowed them to cruise to a 14-1 victory.

The two wins on Sunday moves the ‘Canes to 6-0 on the season as they hold the best record in the CCBA.  Carleton University holds the next best record this season at 4-1.

Hurricanes pitcher Ryan Abraham allowed five hits and three earned runs over four innings in game one, giving him the win; Chandler Laporte entered the game and pitched the final two innings for the Hurricanes, allowing three earned runs and four hits.

Jay Oram led the Hurricanes offence with a home run and five RBI’s while Charles MacLellan also had a home run, went 2-for-4 at the plate and had three RBI’s.

Brett Brittany, Curtis McGregor, Jake Lonar and Matt Barlow all went 2-for-4 at the plate while Tanner Banks added three stolen bases in the win.

The ‘Canes led 4-0 through two innings and 4-3 through four innings before breaking the game wide open with seven runs in the fifth, a single in the sixth and four more in the seventh on their way to the 16-6 win.

In game two, Tyler Johnston pitched for the ‘Canes, going four innings and allowing no runs.  Allan Saunders pitched the fifth, Parker Gallant the sixth and Charles MacLellan the seventh to propel the ‘Canes to victory.

Josh McDonald went 3-for-4 for the ‘Canes, hitting a home run and four RBI’s while Matt Barlow had a strong game going two-for-three.  Jay Oram went 2-for-5 with a home run in the win.

The Hurricanes pulled away early, leading 6-0 after two, scoring single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth before exploding for five in the seventh in the 14-1 victory.

The Hurricanes are back in action when they visit the Dalhousie Tigers this Saturday in Halifax for a double-header.

The ‘Canes play their final home game of the season this Sunday, September 23 when they welcome the St. FX X-Men to Memorial Field for two games (1 and 3:30pm).
