Wells too deep for Dodgers in T-Birds shutout win

Scott Wells pitched a masterful game on Pink Ladies Day as the Thunderbirds blanked the Oshawa Dodgers 4-0 in Hamilton’s final home game of the Intercounty Baseball League regular season on Sunday at Bernie Arbour Memorial Stadium.

Pink Ladies Day involved a fun slo-pitch game between local celebrities and breast cancer survivors and supporters to raise funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure.

Wells not only shutout the Dodgers, but he retired 13 on strikes while allowing eight hits and two walks. William Lawrence faced the final two batters of the game.

Oshawa starter Gord Robertson took the loss, going four innings and allowing two earned runs on six hits and a walk. He had two strikeouts. Robertson was followed in turn by Kevin Wallace and Blake Prior.

Adam Strongman led the Thunderbirds with two hits and two RBIs. Brett Prosper was the Oshawa leader with three singles.

Hamilton will complete its regular season tonight (Monday) with a rescheduled game in Brantford against the Red Sox at 8 p.m.
