Panthers fall on Father's Day to Barnstormers

KITCHENER - A rough Father's Day down the 401 for the Kitchener Panthers.

Chatham-Kent emerged victorious Sunday 13-3 at Fergie Jenkins Field, pushing Kitchener to its fifth loss in its last six games.

The Barnstormers jumped to a 3-0 lead in the third inning, and added five more in the following two innings to build a sizeable 8-0 lead.

Dakota Parsons gave up five runs on three hits and took the loss. He walked five batters and struck out four.

Cam O'Reilly went six innings in the win for the Barnstormers. He gave up two runs on three hits, striking out seven and walking three.

Raul Gonzalez had another multi-hit outing, his second in the last three games.

Spenser Ross also continues to impress. The rookie Panther nabbed a hit in the seven hole and recorded two RBI. This, after a three-for-four outing Friday.

Jett Jarvis was a perfect four-for-four on stolen bases. He is seven-for-seven on the season.

Kitchener sits at 3-10 on the year, and visit Barrie and the Barnstormers Thursday and Friday respectively.
