The Bandits were unable to muster much offence in a 7-1 loss against rival Hamilton Thursday night. Despite the score it was a very defensive affair for most of the game as the teams combined for only 13 hits.

Bandit pitchingBurlington pitcher Steven Dressler was great through seven innings despite allowing six runs on seven hits to go along with five strikeouts. A couple of errors resulted in a sloppy 4th inning that allowed Hamilton to score six times on only five hits, all while the Cardinals had two outs.

Adam Odd hit a home run in 5th inning to get Burlington on the board but they were unable to solve Hamilton’s Tim Black. Through just over eight innings of work he allowed only three hits and one run while earning 4 strikeouts.

The loss snaps Burlington’s six game winning streak, a run that has seen them vault over the Toronto Maple Leaf’s for fourth in the League.

With only a few games left before the playoffs, Barrie sits in 1st followed by Kitchener in 2nd, Brantford in 3rd, London in 4th, Burlington in 5th,Toronto in 6th, Hamilton in 7th and Guelph in 8th.
