Brantford Red Sox kick off primetime schedule

By Jesse Ferguson, 4BRANT


The Brantford Red Sox kicked off its home primetime games Friday night at Arnold Anderson Stadium when they faced the Kitchener Panthers. It was a beautiful day winding down into a perfect night. The sun was just meeting the treeline when first pitch was launched by Brantford pitcher, Graham Tebbit.

Brantford is busy this next stretch! They’ll play 11 games in the next 15 days.

Tebbit settled down after his first inning nicely.

Three unassisted putouts by the first-baseman of Kitchener in one inning, which is incredibly rare and must be some kinda record, commented broadcaster Norm Tolhurst from the booth.

Brantford’s Wilson Soriano made several stabs at shortstop to keep the game within Brantford’s grasp.

But tonight was a pitchers duel! Both starters went long surrendering few hits.

In the bottom of six however, Brantford held a rally. After some confusion, a single by David Mendham to the outfield drove home the tying run.

Kitchener had an answer though. That came in the form of a two-run homerun to restore Kitchener’s two-run lead.

Nic Burdett tried to keep Brantford in it by hitting one deep to left-centre. It looked like it could go but hit to a deep part of the ballpark held it in but still went for a double.

Unfortunately Brantford couldn’t drive him in and this was the closest the Red Sox would come.

The Sox play today at 1PM in Burlington. They resume their home schedule on Sunday at 2 at Arnold Anderson Stadium.
