Gosse, Cleary rally NL past N.S.
- Ken Gosse’s two run single in the fourth inning stood up as the winner as the Newfoundland and Labrador Kelly’s Pub Canadians remained perfect at 5-0 with a com-from-behind 3-2 win over the East Hants Henchmen, the Nova Scotia representatives at the 2007 Causeway Bay Softball Canada Junior Men’s Fast Pitch championship.
Gosse came to bat with pinch runner Matt Hill on third and Mark Lewis at second base and two out. The shortstop then waited for his pitch, a low inside drop ball, and he got it.
He made no mistake sending the pitch up the middle to center field, plating Hill and Lewis with the tying and eventual game winning runs.
"This was a big win for us, we needed it," Gosse said. "It’s good to pull out that W."
The defending champions have another big test later Wednesday against the Saskatchewan Junior Diamondbacks at 6 p.m. The win is also setting up a very pivotal game between them and Ontario One reps, Scarborough Wolverines, Thursday night at 8 p.m. in the final round robin game - a game that could determine first place.
Lewis (1-1, double, walk), Stephen Strapp (3-4) and Jon Kane (1-2) were offensive power for N.L.
East Hants’ hits came from Andy Chase (1-4, two RBI), Aaron Harvey (1-4, run scored), Laurie Isenor (1-3), Pat Stewart (1-3) and losing pitcher Adam White (1-2).
Sean Cleary went the complete game, fanning 14 batters and walking just two batters.
White went five innings, giving up three runs on six hits, walking three and striking out one. Cory Avery went two innings in relief, facing seven batters.

- Andrew Putham pitched a complete game one hitter and Brandon Horn scored once and drove in one as the Scarborough Wolverines blanked Elmira Advance Millwright 4-0 in a battle of Ontario teams Wednesday afternoon.
Ryan Jaynes (2-3, RBI), Rob Clayton (1-2, run scored, RBI triple) and Cameron Haulk (1-3, run scored) led the attack.
Ben Wideman’s single in the fifth inning broke up the perfect game Putham had been throwing to that point.
Dan Martin threw five innings allowing four runs on seven hits, walking one and sitting down two. Ryan Shannon went an inning in relief surrendering one hit.
Scarborough improved to 5-1 while Elmira dropped to 3-3.

- Cory Avery helped his own cause, blasting a towering two-run home run in the sixth inning about 350 feet as the East Hants Henchmen rallied from a 3-2 deficit to take their game with Quebec 4-3 Wednesday afternoon.
Avery (2-4, two runs scored, triple) also struck out five in going the distance allowing three runs on five hits. John Gunn (2-3, RB), Laurie Isenor (1-3, RBI double) and Andy Chase (1-2, two runs scored).
Quebec was led by Mathieu Benoit (1-1, RBI), Charles Hebert (1-3, run scored, RBI, stolen base), Mathieu Lessard (1-3, double) and Pascal Gonthier (1-2, triple, run scored).
Francis LeClair threw a stellar game in his fourth outing, but came away winless yet again. He struck out 13 batters walked one and allowed four runs on just six hits.

The games tonight, NL-SASK in bot 3rd with Sask leading 2-1 and ONT3 SIMCOE ahead 11-1 on NB along with the QUE-PEI game set for 8 pm have been postponed to Thursday due to heavy rains in the area. The times these games will be made up will be announced before the end of the night and posted on this website and sent to you media as soon as I get them.
