ROYALS END SCORELESS DROUGHT AT 14 INNINGS
After being shutout in back to back games by identical scores of 4-0 the Midget Royals finally got on the board and did so often in winning both games of a double header in Simcoe by scores of 12-0 and 15-2 with the second game 5 innings via the mercy rule. In Game 1 Guelph put up 3 runs in the first, 3 more in the fourth and 6 in the seventh to round out the scoring. Nicholas Bombino had a strong game hitting a triple over the center fielders head bringing home 2 runs. His other hit scored a run as well and he scored on a passed ball. Jacob McWhirter's line drive up the middle produced 2 runs. Trent Devine continued his hot hitting with 2 hits one which scored a run. Griffin Cleghorn had a double and a single with the latter scoring a run. Thomas Devereux had a hit and his bases loaded walk scored a run. Marc Charbonneau had a sacrifice fly which brought home a run. Alec McIntyre had 2 hits and scored on a wild pitch. Cole Farby scored on a rundown and walked 3 times. Blaise Shaw and Noah Campagnolo had a hit each. Starting pitcher Campagnolo was strong in his 5 and 2/3rd innings of work allowing just an infield single while walking 4 and striking out 5 using his nasty breaking pitch very effectively. Charbonneau pitched the last 1 and 2/3rd innings keeping the shutout intact.

Game 2 saw the bats continue to roll. Everyone in the staring line-up had a hit or an RBI. Farby's double to left center scored a run and his bases loaded walk scored another run. Charbonneau's double to deep center field scored 2 runs. Tyler Stoltz's base hit produced 2 runs. Blaise Shaw had a double to right center which brought home 2 runs. He also scored on an error. McWhirter had a hit that brought home a run and produced another run with a bases loaded walk. Cleghorn's double to right field scored a run. Noah Graham had a hit and a RBI. Noah Devine had a hit and was hit by a pitch twice the first one with the bases loaded that produced a run. Adam Perry had a RBI groundout. Bombino had a hit and walked 3 times. Royals combined for 21 hits in the two games. Starting pitcher Adam Perry was effective in his 4 innings of work allowing just 2 runs on 2 hits with a walk and 5 strikeouts. Thomas Devereux pitched the fifth recording a strikeout.

Next up for Guelph was a home in home with the London Minor Badgers with the first one at home before going to London 2 days later. At home Guelph came out on top 4-3 scoring a run in the bottom of the seventh for the win. Noah McKillop's ball of his bat deflected off the pitcher's glove allowing Adam Perry to score the winning run. MacKillop produced another run with a sacrifice fly. Noah Graham's hit up the middle scored a run and Noah Devine was hit by a pitch twice (his team leading 5th time) once with the bases loaded bringing home a run. Farby hit a double while Perry, McIntyre, Justin Rochon and McWhirter had a hit each. McWhirter was the starting pitcher and the only pitcher as he was sensational going the distance on only 89 pitches allowing 3 runs only one of them earned while walking 1 and striking out 4 giving the bullpen some needed rest.

In London Guelph won again their fourth win in a row winning 4-1. Devereux threw 6 strong innings allowing just 3 hits with a run on his 54 pitches letting his defense behind him work flawlessly. Graham pitched the seventh for the save. Devereux helped his own cause with a hit which scored a run then Rochon followed right after him with a hit which brought home a run. McIntyre scored a run when the pitcher attempted to pick him off at second but the ball sailed into center field as he beat the throw home. Their last run was scored by Trent Devine when he came home from third as another teammate was in a rundown between first and second. Devine also had 2 hits. Perry had a good outing offensively with a single and a double. McWhirter had a cue ball single as his hit stayed fair down the third base line.

Next up for Guelph is another trip to London on Saturday June 24th this time to take on London Tecumseh at beautiful Labatt Park then they travel to Waterloo to take on the Tigers at Bechtel Park on June 27th.
