James Smibert had five RBI to lead the Welland Jack to a 15-4 win over the Brantford Red Sox Sunday in Intercounty Baseball League action at Arnold Anderson Stadium.

Smibert’s single in the first inning scored one run, before he hit a double in the second to score Hogan Brown for the second time in the game. Smibert finished off his early game output with another single, this time driving in three runs to lead the Jackfish during a seven-run third inning.

Brown, Brandon Nicholson, Steven Moretto, Ethan Hunt, and Josh Williams all hit doubles in a game the Jackfish pounded out 17 hits.

Jeremie Veilleux led the Red Sox with three hits, while Matthew Fabian and Christian Kuzemka had two each.
Adam Jafine got the win on the mound, giving up three runs on eight hits, while striking out five in six innings of work. Jeremias Sucre was tagged with the loss.

The Jackfish (6-2) are on the road against the Barrie Baycats Thursday at 7:3o p.m.
