TORONTO, ON: The Humber Hawks men's baseball team, who just recently took sole possesion of first place, extended their lead by way of two dominating wins over George Brown on Wednesday night at Christie Pits.
Humber Hawks 12 vs George Brown 2
The Hawks and Huskies went scoreless early, but after the Hawks held a slim one-run lead in the fourth, it was the visiting Humber squad that soared in the fifth. A couple of walks pushed across two Hawk runs, and this was followed by the big blow by Humber star Justin Marra, a grand slam over the right field fence.
After they pushed the lead to 9-0, it was time for the Huskies to answer, and they did with their only two runs of the night. Humber tacked on late, and finished with the 12-2 win.
Stephen Nahrabecki was the winning pitcher for the Hawks, his second of the season, without a loss.
Humber Hawks 14 vs George Brown 0
This game was over early, in more than one way. Humber ran out to a 7-0 lead in the first and were still batting after almost 20 minutes of play. The other way came into play in the fifth, as the mercy rule was applied after five complete innings.
David Sigmund was masterful on the mound, and pitched the Hawks third no-hitter in history. He remains undefeated this year, with a 3-0 record.
Humber will host Durham College on Saturday at Connorvale Park. The game times are unique for a Saturday affair, with game times at 5:00 pm and 7:30 pm.
