In­side pitch

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

Bat­ter Aaron Young of the Syd­ney Mines Ram­blers jumps out of the way of an in­side pitch that was han­dled by Glace Bay McDon­ald’s Colonels catcher Jack Cashen dur­ing ac­tion at the Nova Sco­tia Ma­jor Lit­tle League cham­pi­onships at the Joe Scott Field in Syd­ney Mines. Af­ter three con­sec­u­tive shutouts, Glace Bay fi­nally con­ceded some runs, but won the game 14-4 to fin­ish un­de­feated in the dou­ble round robin against the Ram­blers and the Syd­ney Soon­ers. Cyril MacQueen and Liam Burke hit home runs for the Colonels, while the Ram­blers top hit­ters were Bry­den Gar­diner with a dou­ble and sin­gle and An­drew Marsh with a triple. With the win, the Colonels re­peat as pro­vin­cial cham­pi­ons and will host the New Brunswick champs next week at the Cameron Bowl in Glace Bay. The win­ner will ad­vance to the Cana­dian cham­pi­onships in Ot­tawa in Au­gust. See page B3 for more in­for­ma­tion.
