The Thunder Bay Border Cats offence was held in check on Wednesday as the home side dropped a 3-1 decision to the Duluth Huskies at Port Arthur Stadium. The Cats (3-5), managed only three hits and had a tough night defensively making four errors in the third inning that led to a pair of Duluth runs as the Huskies evened the four-game series at a game apiece.
Caden Fiveash (Oklahoma College-Tonkawa) pitched well for Thunder Bay, but was saddled with the loss, dropping his record to 1-1. The righthander went five innings and allowed one earned run on three hits with two walks and two strikeouts. Reliever Jacob Gajic (Northwest Missouri State University) had a good outing in relief as the lefthander from Hamilton, ON, pitched three innings and struck out three, while allowing one run. Trey Lewis (South Alabama) drove in the Cats only run with a third inning single.
The two teams meet again on Thursday at 6:35pm with righthander Peyton Fosher (University of Nevada) taking his 1-0 record to the mound for Thunder Bay. It’s Pride Night at the ballpark and “Thirsty Thursday” as fans 19-years of age and older can enjoy $5 tall boys from Sleeping Giant Brewery.
