Ninth-inning fireworks sparks Junior Indians’ win

Stratford Gazette

Stratford Junior Indians played their second consecutive home game last week, hosting the strong Kitchener Panthers squad at National Stadium.

The Indians scored early, but Kitchener built an 8-4 lead after five innings. Stratford clawed back to within one run after seven innings, but gave up three in the top of the ninth.

Some fireworks in the bottom of the ninth erupted after a hit batsmen and four players were ejected from the game, but the Indians managed to scrape together three more runs to pull to within one.

Jamie Nafziger then delivered some fireworks of his own with a two-out, grand slam walk-off homer to right field.

Brandon Pletsch and Kyle Frey paced the Indians’ attack with three hits apiece, while Jay Schooley, Jake Ruelicke and Matt Berger had two apiece. Mike Tiano also singled in the win.

Devon Bernat and Fraser Urquhart scattered eight hits over nine innings in the 14-11 victory.

Next up the Jr. Indians is a tournament in Dundas this weekend.
