The Welland Jackfish put on a show, edging the London Majors 12-11 Saturday during Intercounty Baseball League action.
Hogan Brown’s fielder’s choice scored Luis Jean in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Jackfish a lead they wouldn’t give up.

After the Majors scored a pair of runs in the top of the first inning, the Jackfish pounded out five runs on eight hits to take the lead. They added one run in the fifth inning, three in the sixth and two more in the seventh during the momentum seesaw.

Brown also added two more RBI after a double in the first inning. James Smibert, Sam Cawker, and Ethan Hunt each had two RBI for the Jackfish.

Cleveland Brownlee led the Majors offence thanks to his two home runs, three RBI and three runs scored.
Mike Mueller earned the win on the mound, while Pedro De Los Santos took the loss.

The Jackfish improves to 5-2 and get back to action Sunday when they visit the Brantford Red Sox at 2 p.m.
