The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Op­po­sites did at­tract wins for two Kings County Base­ball League teams on Wed­nes­day.

The North­side Gill Con­struc­tion Brew­ers snuck past the Morell Che­vies 5-4, and the Peakes Bombers thumped the Char­lot­te­town Jays 13-3.

Fri­day, the Cardi­gan Clip­pers host the Strat­ford Ath­let­ics at 6:15 p.m. in a game resched­uled from Wed­nes­day.

Brew­ers 5, Che­vies 4 (8 in­nings)

Will Jadis scored on a passed ball in the bot­tom of the eighth in­ning to com­plete the Brew­ers’ come-from-be­hind win.

The Brew­ers scored two runs in the bot­tom of the fourth to tie it 3-3, be­fore the Che­vies re­took the lead 4-3 in the top of the sev­enth.

But a Spencer Smith sacri­fice fly to score Gar­ret Vandiepen in the bot­tom of the in­ning evened things 4-4.

Jadis led the Brew­ers’ bats, go­ing 3-for-4, with a dou­ble, while Jay­den MacLean (2-3) and Mitch Ryan (2-3, home run) chipped in at the plate.

MacLean picked up the win for the Brew­ers com­ing in re­lief of Matt My­ers and Ja­son MacLean.

Bombers 13, Jays 3

Peakes broke open a tight 5-3 game with eight runs in the fifth in­ning and cruised to the win.

The Bombers got off to an early start with three runs in the first, fol­lowed by a Dil­lon Doucette solo homer in the third to make things 4-0.

But the Jays re­sponded with three runs to make it close un­til Bombers closed it out.

Bruce Jay picked up the pitch­ing win Bombers, strik­ing out four over five in­nings, while Terry Mac­Don­ald was tagged with the loss for the Jays.

Top bat­ters for the Bombers were Josh Cof­fin (2-3), Matt Bradley (2-3) and Neal Mor­ri­son (1-1).
