LAST TIME OUT VS DURHAM

The two teams met at legendary Kinsmen Park in Oshawa on September 16. After the Lords took game one, it was the Hawks who responded in more ways than one. First, they answered by taking game two 8-6 to gain the split, but within the actual game they came back from a 6-3 deficit late to steal the 8-6 win. Four Hawks mashed two hits each in the game, but it was a Durham error in the seventh that proved to be costly, allowing the Hawks to score twice after tying the game a batter earlier. Matthew Stoddart snared the win in relief, while Jason Crouse of the home team was tagged with the loss.

SCOUTING DURHAM

  • The Lords have been a bit of an enigma this year, as they have split every series they have played on their way to the 6-6 record
  • Veteran lefty Alec Brown has put himself in the middle of the conversation for OCAA Pitcher of the Year, checking in with a 3-0 record and a miniscule ERA of 0.67
  • Jake Legros is also on the table, also at 3-0 and a perfect 0.00 ERA
  • Sam Dempster, or widely known as the "legendary" Sam Dempster, continues to be the bench boss for Durham
