Betts' Eighth Inning Grand Slam Leads
Baycats Over Dodgers
In Barrie, Todd Betts hit a grand slam home run in the bottom of the
eighth inning and then the Baycats survived a two-run Oshawa ninth
to edge the Dodgers 5-4.
Trailing 2-1, Betts slammed a two-out grand slam that put the
Baycats ahead 5-1. Barrie would need all of those runs as the
Dodgers got two back in the top of the ninth inning before falling
David Latour cashed Barrie’s other run with an RBI double in the
first and Ryan Spataro scored twice for the winners. Starter Paul
Spoljaric got the win, allowing two runs on six hits over eight innings,
striking out seven. Derek McDaid allowed two runs on a hit before
getting out of the ninth to pick up a save.
Greg Byron was the loser for Oshawa. He allowed five runs on six
hits with two strikeouts and two walks over 7 2/3 innings. Ryan
Fleming hit a pair of solo homers for Oshawa and scored three
runs, while James Kottaras had two hits.
