Dodgers End Season With 11-8 Loss to Guelph

In Guelph, the Royals survived a late spirited Oshawa comeback
attempt to edge the Dodgers 11-8 and win their opening round
series on a rainy afternoon in Guelph.

Guelph wins the best-of-seven series 4-1 and will now meet the
Brantford Red Sox in the second round of the playoffs starting early
next week.

The Royals scored six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a
big lead, but the Dodgers didn’t go down easily, scoring three runs
and leaving the bases loaded in the top of the ninth inning as the
rain fell to finally be eliminated.

Kevin Hinton and Mark Allen both hit home runs for the Royals, who
won despite allowing 17 Oshawa hits. Andrew Karkoulas had three
hits and drove in three runs for the Royals, and Allen also had three
RBI.

Brett Lawson went seven innings for the win, allowing four runs on
13 hits with one strikeout and two walks. Adam Rowe got the last out
of the game for the save.

Greg Byron was the starter and loser for Oshawa. He went 4 1/3
innings, allowing 10 runs on eight hits with four walks. Kofi Osei-
Aning had three hits and drove in a run and Jordan Castaldo also
had three hits for Oshawa.
