Panthers thrashed in Toronto – Kitchener News
The Panthers meet in Barrie on Thursday evening in a three-way battle for second place in the IBL standings
Former Blue Jays draft pick Marcus Knecht had one night.
He went five on five with two home runs to lead the Maple Leafs to a 20-3 win over the Kitchener Panthers in Toronto on Wednesday night.
It was part of a five home run night for the Maple Leafs that was the bread and butter for this team all season.
You lead the IBL in this category with 43. For comparison, Welland is second at 25.
The Leafs would take a 3-0 lead in the second inning, but Kitchener tied in with an RBI single from Andy Leader in the third, followed by a double from Ryley Davenport, who drove in two runs.
But that was all Kitchener could muster.
Adam Robertson got the start and marked defeat for the Panthers. He went three innings, gave up four hits and five runs (three earned), walked four and knocked out none.
With Welland’s defeat and victory over Brantford, three teams with 12-11 records go into action on Thursday night, five games back to first place London.
