The Thunder Bay Border Cats entered Tuesday’s game with their opponent – the Waterloo Bucks – on a nine-game winning streak. It did not look good early for the Cats as the Bucks got off to a 4-0 lead. However, by putting together some timely hits the Border Cats managed to score seven unanswered runs to win the game 7-4 in thirteen innings.

The win is significant because of how well the Bucks have played recently. To end a nine-game winning streak is very impressive. There were many Border Cats who played a big role in the victory like Braden Mosley who went 3-5 with two RBI’s and JF Garon went 4-7 with two RBI’s. In the pitching department, Brandon Fokkema pitched a solid six innings of relief for the Cats while Brady Hill was solid in his few innings.

Both teams had chances to end the game with many runners on but it was the Border Cats who found the big hit. The Cats alone had the bases loaded multiple times in extra innings and the Bucks had runners in scoring position on a few occasions. Cody Obrien managed to pitch out of a jam in the 12th inning to keep the game alive.

The Cats now travel back to Duluth, MN. To take on the Huskies. They will play a two-game series there before returning home to Thunder Bay for a four-game home stand starting Friday. By the way, Friday is also a fireworks night so make sure you get your tickets from the box office.
