TRURO - If the Kentville senior Wildcats hope to make the NSSBL playoffs this season, the Truro Bearcats are a team they’re going to have to beat.

The Wildcats visited Truro July 14 and romped to a 10-1 victory, snapping an eight-game losing streak dating back to June 19.

The win was Kentville’s third of the season against 14 losses, with all three wins having come at the expense of the Bearcats.

The Wildcats put the game away early, batting around in the top of the first inning and scoring nine runs off Truro pitchers Craig Higgins and John Chapman.

It remained 9-0 until Truro got on the board with a run in the bottom of the fourth inning. Kentville got that run back in the top of the fifth to make it 10-1, which accounted for the scoring on the evening.

Chapman and Jeff Chisholm combined to limit the Wildcats to one additional run after the decisive nine-run first.

Alex Ostrov went the distance for Kentville, scattering nine hits and surrendering just one run, to earn the victory. Higgins, who was unable to make it out of the first inning, took the loss.

David McIntyre led a 14-hit Kentville attack with four singles and one RBI. Colby Turple had a double and two singles and drove in two. Kyle Dougan had two singles and one RBI, and Jason Pleasant-Sampson chipped in a pair of singles.

Guy Pellerine accounted for the only Truro run with a solo homer in the fourth inning, and also singled and doubled. Adam Lombard added three singles.

The Wildcats are scheduled to host Halifax July 15 at 7:30 at Memorial Park, but the status of that game could be in jeopardy due to rain in the forecast for this afternoon and evening.
