On the strength of three straight wins over Toronto, the Burlington Bandits made a run up the Intercounty Baseball League standings ladder. While that six game winning streak came to an end Thursday against Hamilton, the Bandits earned a 1.5  game lead on Toronto for 5th place in league standing.

If the standings hold, Friday night’s game against the London Majors will be a preview of the first round of the playoffs.

A win would do little in the standings, the Bandits need to beat London to gain a bit of momentum and confidence ahead of the playoff series.

Baseball - player at bat with lightsThrough four games this year Burlington has been unable to beat the London Majors. Even with a 8 – 0 3rd inning lead over the Majors in their last meeting, Burlington was unable to seal the deal as they lost 11-12.

Despite early leads in their last three meetings, the Bandits have been unable to hold London off the scoreboard and have been outscored 32-18.

It’s a trend that Burlington needs to snap in London  Friday night.
