The Burlington Bandits did to the Guelph Royals what the league has been doing to them almost since the beginning of the season – beating the daylights out of their opponent.

The Bandits have been longer in the basement most of the time but yesterday they served up the Royals their fifth straight loss.
Christian Hauck (2-1) scattered four hits and one run over seven innings to lead the Burlington Bandits to a 10-1 win over the Guelph Royals Saturday afternoon.

Hauck survived seven walks and struck out four.

Justin Gideon tripled, singled and drove in three while scoring twice. He also walked three times. Jim Martin had two hits and two RBI, Carlos Villoria drove in a run on three hits, Kevin Hussey had two hits, an RBI and scored twice. Adam Odd, Canice Ejoh and John Whaley all drove in a run.

Matt Schmidt had the Royals’ lone RBI. Jeff MacLeod singled twice.

Evan DiMichelle (0-4) lasted four outs and gave up four runs on four hits, walking four and striking out two.

The Royals and Bandits are tied for last place with 4-12 records. Guelph has lost five straight games.

The Kitchener Panthers beat the league leading London Royals in battle for first place.

Needing a win to move into first place, Cory Hammond stepped up for the London Majors.

Hammond (2-0) struck out five in a complete-game victory as the Majors beat Kitchener 2-1 Saturday night and moved past the Panthers atop the standings. Hammond scattered 10 hits and didn’t walk a batter.

Keith Kandel drove in both London runs with a bases loaded single in the second inning. He added a double and accounted for two of the Majors’ five hits.

Ian Rendon (3-1) took the loss for Kitchener, allowing two runs on five hits over 7.1 innings, striking out eight and walking four.
Sean Reilly hit a solo home run in the third inning. Terrell Alliman had three of the Panthers’ 10 hits, while Justin Interisano added two singles.

London (13-4) is a half game ahead of Kitchener, which dropped to 12-4.
