The Yorkton Cardinals were plain and simply hammered by the Brooks Bombers tonight.
The two Western Canadian Baseball League teams met at Jubilee Park for the middle game of the three-game visit to the City by the Bombers. Brooks was coming off a 5-0 win Friday, and their offence just kept on rolling tonight.
Brooks started with a single run in the first inning, then added five in the third, and six in fourth, before the Cardinals finally plated two in the home-half of the fourth to make it a 12-2 contest.
But the Bomber offence just kept piling on the runs scoring four in the fifth to extend their lead to 16-2.
Yorkton would add one in the ninth but fall well-short in the 16-3 final.
McCoy Pearce had a home run, and five runs-batted-in for the Bandits, and Brendan Kates had four RBIs.
Tyler Mondoux was the winning pitcher. He started the game and went six innings, allowing five hits, and two runs, both unearned.
The loss was added to Hut Smith’s record. He started and went three innings fiving up seven hits, walking three and surrendering eight runs, all of them unearned.
The two teams go at it again tomorrow, (Sunday), afternoon at 2:05 p.m. at Jubilee Park.
