Bucks Offense Rolls to 11-4 Win

THUNDER BAY, ONT  Jon McAllister had four hits and Cody Sedlock allowed only one run over seven innings of work to lead the Waterloo Bucks to an 11-4 victory over the Thunder Bay BorderCats at TBayTel Park on Sunday evening. The Bucks surged out to a 6-0 lead after three innings and cruised to their second consecutive win to remain in a virtual tie with Willmar atop the North Division standings.

McAllister had a team-high four hits, but David Kerian also had three hits. Meanwhile Mikal Hill Kevin Kaczmarski, Pat MacKenzie, Connor McClain and Will Sparks each had two. Everyone in the starting line-up finished with at least one hit as the Bucks belted out a season-high 19 hits.

Ryan Nagle finished with a single hit but it was a big one, a no doubt two-run homer that banged off the light tower in right center field in the second inning.

All the while, Cody Sedlock cruised on the mound. After working out of some trouble in the first inning he settled down and eventually retired 11 straight at one point. He would carry a shutout into the sixth before Thunder Bay scored and finished with only run allowed on seven hits with five strikeouts and one walk in seven innings.

The Bucks have now won each of Sedlock's last eight starts.
