Charlottetown Jays Win First KCBL Victory in Two Years
Bombers win victory over Athletics thanks to Power, Doucette
According to The Guardian, the Charlottetown Jays senior squad won their first victory in their two years in the Kings County Baseball League on Sunday by defeating the Charlottetown Expos 6 – 4. The Jays pick up their first victory thanks to starting pitcher Terry (Bubba) MacDonald. The 53-year old went three solid innings and handed over a 6-4 lead off to Stephen Birt who gave up only one hit during the next four innings to help the Jays secure their first KCBL victory.
The Jays competed in the Canadian old-timer's tournament earlier in the months of August in Charlottetown. Another player that contributed to the Jays victory was Scott (Rammer),Ramsey. He had a critical two-run double in the bottom of the third on Sunday, which helped to put the Jays ahead and win the game.
Other major hitters in the game for the Jays included Kris O’Brien (1-for-2), Brodie Coffin (with 1-for-3 and a key double in the first inning), and Mark Goyetche (1-for-2 with an RBI). The Jays initially lost a heart breaker in the first game of the doubleheader against the Expos who took a 3-2 win on Jordan’s Duffy’s bottom of the seven walk-off hit. The Jays received a gem from John (Poochie) Burke for the loss.
