WINDSOR, N.S. - The Sherose Island Schooners, from Shelburne County, were certainly hoping to have a better weekend in Hants County July 14-15.
They travelled to Hants North to play Kennetcook July 14 in a pair of Nova Scotia Intermediate Baseball League Games before they finished in Hantsport on July 15 with a pair of games against the Shamrocks.
The Schooners spent the weekend prior, July 7-8, losing three of four games in Hants County as they split a pair with the Noel Road Jays and were swept by the Windsor Knights.
The following is a recap of those games.
Noel Road 3, Sherose Island 1
Lee Spares pitched a complete game win for the Jays while going two for three at the plate. He gave up four hits while walking five in earning the win.
Sherose Island 7, Noel Road 2
Defensive miscues cost the Jays in this one as Shaun Marshall suffered the pitching loss despite not walking a single batter. Of the five runs scored against him in five innings, only two were earned.
Josh Burke pitched the final two innings in relief for the Jays.
Aaron McPhee stroked a pair of singles and collected an RBI in the loss while Kenny Miller doubled and Mike White also garnered a pair of base hits.
