BORDER CATS GIVE BACK AND BOUNCE BACK!
Saturday was a great day for the Thunder Bay Border Cats in many ways! In terms of what happened on the field – in Thunder Bay – the Cats bounced back from a tough loss the previous night to the St. Cloud Rox. The Cats stomped the Rox 8-3 in front of another energetic and supportive home crowd.
Blaze Bohall pitched a great game for the Cats pitching six strong innings and struck out seven. Bohall had lots of help from his teammates on the offensive side as the Cats managed 10 hits. Braden Mosley had the big hit of the night with a three-run home run in the first inning. Mosley’s teammates followed behind him with Andy Weber picking up a couple RBI’s. Colin Rosenbaum, Noah Strohl, and Colton Thomas each added a RBI to get the run total to eight.
The day started with the Border Cats flying to North Caribou Lake First Nation to host a baseball camp for the children of the community. This would not have been possible without the help of Goldcorp who provided the plane and equipment. There will be plenty more to come from the trip in the next coming days. The win moves the Cats another step closer to .500 and they look to continue that positive trend tomorrow night versus the Waterloo Bucks. The Bucks will visit Port Arthur Stadium for the first time this year as it’s the first extended home stand for the Cats this summer.
