Had the Burlington Herd been able to board the bus after their first baseball game on Sunday in Kitchener it would have been a good day.

But it was to be a double header between the Herd and the Panthers and ended up in a draw with each team taking a game apiece.

Burlington won the first game, 4-0. Adam Prashad (3-2) threw a complete-game two-hitter with three strikeouts. Matt Schmidt drilled a three-run home run in the third inning, and Kevin Hussey hit a solo blast in the fifth.
Yulexis La Rose and Colin Gordner had Kitchener’s hits.

Matt McGovern (1-1) went the distance for the Panthers and allowed four runs on eight hits, walking one and striking out four.

In game two, Ryan Douse scored on an error in the 10th inning as the Panthers won 9-8. Kitchener led 8-3 before Burlington scored five in the seventh inning.

Jeff Pietraszko homered and drove in four with two runs scored in the win. Douse doubled twice and scored once and drove in a run. Justin Interisano had a pair of RBI and a run. Zarley Cina had the other RBI. Yorbis Borroto scored twice.

Noelvis Entenza (3-0) picked up the win after going 3.2 scoreless innings of relief, scattering two hits with a walk and three strikeouts. Ian Rendon started and allowed an earned run on four hits over 3.2 innings with three walks and three strikeouts.

For Burlington, Kevin Hussey homered and drove in three. Quinton Bent went 3-for-4 with two runs and two RBI. Cooper Lamb had a hit, RBI and two runs, and Justin Gideon drove in a run.
