TRURO – There will be no playoff action for the Truro Bearcats again this season.
The Bearcats missed out on the Nova Scotia Senior Baseball League postseason for the fourth consecutive campaign on the weekend with one win in three games.
The Bearcats (8-20) are 4.5 games behind the Kentville Wildcats (12-15) for the fourth and final playoff spot with one game remaining in the regular season, a make-up against the Dartmouth Dry (17-10), which was slated for Monday at the TAAC Grounds as the second tilt in a doubleheader but was rained out.
The Bearcats were defeated 11-2 by the Dry in the opening game after splitting a twinbill with the Halifax Canadians (17-10) Sunday in Halifax. The Bearcats were downed 12-3 in Game 2 after opening with a 12-9 victory.

Jake Pelham powered the Halifax offence with a home run, triple and two singles.
In Game 1, Truro scored three runs in the 10th inning to win. Pellerine was credited with the complete-game victory and got help from MacPherson, who blasted a home run, doubled twice and singled. Pellerine helped his own cause with a home run, double and single.
