TRURO, N.S. - The visiting Kentville Wildcats put a damper on the Truro Bearcats’ home opener Friday night, downing the locals 10-5 in Nova Scotia Senior Baseball league play.
It was to be the first of two home games on the weekend for the Bearcats, but their contest slated for Sunday night at the TAAC Grounds has now been cancelled and will be rescheduled to a later date.
The Wildcats opened the scoring in the first inning Friday to take a 1-0 lead.
Truro came back in the third though, to go ahead 4-1. With Adam Lombard aboard, Matt Mingo drilled a line shot down the left field line, good for a double. Justin Morton singled to bring in those two, and after a John Chapman single, Morton was brought in with a Jeff Chisholm single making it 3-1.
The four-run inning was capped with John Chapman on third. Chapman bolted for home with pitcher Zack Zinck in his wind-up and was safe, in a rare bid to steal home, to make it 4-1.
