Dodgers Crush Kitchener
Oshawa Dodgers made it two wins in a row, and did it in dramatic fashion
scoring 13 run in the second inning as they vaulted past the Kitchener
Panthers 19-4 in the final Intercounty Baseball League game of the day
here tonight (Sunday) in Jack Couch Park.
Kitchener’s loss took the edge an otherwise enjoyable evening, as local
annual Kitchener Minor Baseball Association players were honoured prior
to the game with their Pitch, Hit, and Run Awards. National and Canadian
Baseball Hall of Fame, and Order of Canada member Ferguson Jenkins
threw out the first pitch. Jenkins, who played in the IBL for London
Majors in the mid-1980s, remained for most of the game, signing
autographs and meeting with fans, and even participating in Panther
Pitch on the field.
Scott Kelly picked up the victory for Oshawa, pitching five innings of four-
hit baseball. He gave up four runs, none of which was earned. Scott
struck out seven batters. Kevin Wallace earned the save by pitching the
last four innings without allowing any runs, and striking out two.
Chris Dickie, who lasted little more than one inning, was charged with the
loss. He gave up the first five runs in the second inning, before Brad
Earle came on in relief. Earle was tagged for the next eight runs. Six
errors by the Panthers resulted in six unearned runs by Oshawa.
Brett Prosper had two hits and four RBIs for the Dodgers, including a
three-run home run in the fifth inning. Steve Lewis connected for five
hits; however, a diving Mike Roeder deprived him of a sixth in the sixth.
Justin Wendt had two hits for the Panthers, and Bryon Bell hit a two-run
home run in the fifth for Kitchener.
