West Carleton Electric wins 6-3 at home over the Blues UPDATED

West Carleton Electric ended their losing streak on Tuesday night in Fitzroy Harbour with a 6-3 win over the visiting Barrhaven Broadway Blues.

Both pitchers went the distance as Andy Barber earned the win and Paul Ceppi took the loss.

The first three innings were scoreless until the home team scored first in the bottom of the fourth. Derek Barber lead off with a single and took second and third on wild pitches. Troy Wilson scored Barber on an RBI single.

The fifth was an ugly inning for both teams. In the Barrhaven half of the frame, Kevin Williams hit a two-out single. Don Cox then hit a very high infield pop up that did not get caught putting men on first and second. Steve Edgerton drove in Williams to tie the game. A passed ball then a subsequent over throw attempt to throw out the runner allowed Cox to score, and a single by Trevor Power scored Edgerton to make it 3-1 for the Blues.

West Carleton was able to take the lead in the bottom of the fifth, also taking advantage of some miscues. Steve Cavanagh lead off with a misplayed grounder and made it to second base. Mitch Taylor doubled to score Cavanagh. Jon Daley hit an infield single to put men on the corners, then Daley took second uncontestedly. A misplayed fly ball hit by Derek Barber scored Taylor and Daley. Neil Murphy then singled to score Barber and make it 5-3 for the home team.

Steve Cavanagh hit a solo shot in the sixth to round out the scoring.

With the pitching win and no earned runs allowed, Andy Barber takes the Caveman's Choice as player of the game.
