Good evening for Kentville baseball July 23


KENTVILLE - All in all, July 23 was a good night for Kentville baseball, with both the senior and junior AAA Wildcats picking up victories.

Wins have been few and far-between for the senior Wildcats so far this season, but they eked out a 1-0 win July 23 in Dartmouth and have Codey Shrider to thank.

In a dominant performance, Shrider pitched the complete game, allowing just three hits and striking out 13.

Kentville scored the only run of the game in the top of the first inning. There was no more scoring the rest of the way.

Jason Mosher, Cam Marling, Jeff Reeves and Justin Davies all saw mound action for Dartmouth, combining to allow Kentville batters just three hits. Mosher, the starter, took the loss.

Colby Turple singled and doubled for the Wildcats, and David McIntyre had a single.  Greg West, Chris Head and Matt Doudelet had one single each for the Dry.

The Wildcats improved to 4-15 with the victory, and were six points behind Truro for the final NSSBL playoff berth with nine regular season games left to play, two of which are against the Bearcats.

Dartmouth fell to 12-8 with the loss, good for second in the league behind 14-6 Sydney.

In Kentville, the junior Wildcats took on the Nova Scotia Youth Selects, the provincial 17-U team, and ended up with a 9-1 victory.

Luke Muise threw a complete-game six-hitter, allowing just one run and striking out two. Hogan Ingram, the Youth Selects’ starter, was the losing pitcher.

The Wildcats scored their nine runs on 10 hits and five walks. According to coach Lyle Boylen, it was a team effort on offence, with all nine starters reaching base at least once and seven scoring at least one run.

Kentville batted around in the third inning, scoring three runs and leaving the bases loaded. The Wildcats broke the game open in the sixth, once again batting around and scoring five times.

Justin Beach had two singles and scored two runs, one of them as he motored all the way around from first base on a Dryden Schofield double.

Schofield doubled and singled and had two RBI, and Bradley Fuller scored a pair of runs. Muise and Ethan Lycan-Lang also had run-scoring hits.

With the win, the second-place Wildcats improved their season record to 9-2-1. The Youth Selects fell to 5-4 with the loss.
