On paper, it looks like

Bobby Korecky

let this one get away. He came on in the final inning and recorded just one out while giving up 3 hits.

Steve Delabar

came in the hopes of finishing off the night. And, he did. Just not the way

Gary Allenson

had hoped. With one run already in, Delabar was tasked with intentionally walking

Jimmy Paredes


“What is up with Steve Delabar this year?”

The first pitch of the INTENTIONAL WALK sequence sailed above

Sean Ochinko

‘s glove for a wild pitch that allowed the tying run to score. With Paredes still at the plate, Delabar threw ANOTHER wild pitch to allow the go ahead run to score. These runs were credited to Korecky. What is up with Delabar this year?

The offense, who managed just 2 runs all game could not stage a dramatic bottom of the ninth come back. Their two runs came off the bat of Cole Gillespie who hit a solo home run. Edwin Encarnacion went 1/4 in the leadoff spot.

    Vancouver Canadians (34-24)

    Like Dunedin, the Canadians played extra baseball. They pulled off a crazy, dramatic ending to 14 inning affair against the Everett Aquasox. With the bases loaded in the 14th and a 6-6 tie, the wild pitch struck again! Everett pitcher, Sam Lindquist uncorked a wild one and Canadians outfielder Brendan Kalfus broke from third. He slid in with the winning run. A sold out crowd at Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium were treated to a pretty entertaining finish.
