Right up until the last hit of the game, it looked like the Burlington Bandits were going to steal a game from their rivals in Hamilton.


Those stands weren’t exactly full were they? Hamilton took the baseball game in a close one – 2-1 for the other guys.

It was two errors committed by Burlington that allowed Hamilton to bring in two runs in the bottom of the ninth for their seventh win of the season.

The game got off to quick start as Burlington’s Shaun Cooper caught a fortuitous bounce in the top of the first, when the ball hit his helmet as he rounded third and allowed him to score.

That was the games sole hit until into the third inning in what was a pitching showcase. Hamilton’s Tim Black pitched all nine innings, giving up only three hits and one run while Burlington’s Dylan Perego threw all but three pitches through nine innings giving up three hits and two runs.

The win keeps the Cardinals in sixth place with as they prepare to greet the London Majors at home.

The Bandits are now mired in a four game losing streak as they head to Guelph for a battle between the bottom two teams in the league.
