Kanata and Stittsville tie at 9 - WITH DETAILS

The Kanata Pirates and the Stittsville 56ers tied at 9 in Greater Ottawa Fastball League action at the Grove on Wednesday night.

Trevor Lahey and Derick Bulley pitched for Kanata. Dan Konkle and Darren Featherstone handled pitching duties for Stittsville.

Johnny Craig provides the details.

In the first walks to Joe Allen and Aaron Amo were cashed by a Jon Ferguson double and he would later score on a 56er error to put Kanata out to a 3-0 lead.  

In the bottom of the second Ryan Bond lead off on a walk and moved to second on a sac bunt.  Dan Bradley then hit a ground ball up the left side and Bond got caught in a good old fashion game of pickle.  Despite the valiant effort, the Pirates got him and Bradley moved to second, he would later score on a Trevor Scott single, 3-1.

In the third Kanata scored two more on singles from Amo, Ferguson and Tony MacDonald taking a 5-1 lead.  

Stittsville would get one back when Scott Herriot singled, stole second and then scored on a Dan Jessiman single cutting the lead to 3.

The 4th was a big inning for the 56ers as old long arms Bradley blasted a home run well up the lights to opposite field.  They would cash in 4 more on a walk to Scott and singles to Ladouceur, Nystedt, Featherstalone, and Herriot taking a 7-5 lead as the Pirates relieved Lahey on the hill with Bulley part way through. 

Kanata answered right back though when Bulley hit a missile over the left field fence followed by Ferguson’s blast to right - the back to back shots tied the game and the 56ers went to the bull pen; enter Dan Konkle relieving Featherstone.   

Top of 6 now, as the players expect daylight to break any minute, they soldier on. Kanata scores two more on a single to Allen, a double to Schonfield and a Stittsville error taking a 9-7 which they would hold into the bottom of 7.  

Scott Parsons was hit by a pitch to lead things off and then scored on Bradley’s double. Dan Konkle then hit a triple to centre tying the game and bringing the winning run to third with one out, but the Pirates were able to close out the marathon, 9-9.

In a GOFL first, the Caveman's Choice for player of the game was Scott Jessiman, despite his being on the 56ers Injured Reserve list. Reason? He showed up with four pizzas for the Stittsville team for their post game nourishment.

Ferguson: 1B,2B, HR
Bulley : HR

Bradley: HR, 2B
Konkle: 3B, RBI
