May 18There was nothing shabby about the game between the Barrie Baycats and the Burlington Herd.

The Baycats have owned the top spot in the league for years.

The Herd’s Santos Arias pitched seven innings and struck out two as the Barrie Baycats edged the Burlington Herd 2-1 Thursday night at Nelson Park.

Arias (1-0) scattered seven hits and didn’t walk a batter. He gave up an RBI single to Tyler Patzalek in the bottom of the first. Jaspreet Shergill tossed a perfect ninth with a strikeout for his first save.

Offensively, Kyle DeGrace and Jordan Castaldo drove in the Baycats runs. Ryan Spataro singled and scored twice and had two stolen bases.

Chris Boatto (0-1) took the loss, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits with three walks and seven strikeouts.

Barrie improved to 3-0, and Burlington dropped to 0-3.

Hopefully the grit that was evident in the game will show up when the Herd goes up against other teams in the league.
