Braves run win streak to 7 games


The two-time defending champs are looking great to start the season.

The Fort Frances Braves ran their win streak to start the 2019 Rainy River District Fastball League campaign to seven games with a 10-0 drubbing of the Rainy River Royals on Thursday night.

Jesse Tom homered twice while Jaden Gustafson earned the pitching win for the undefeated Braves (7-0).

Myron Armstrong suffered the loss for the Royals (5-2).

In other games last Thursday, Marcel Pagee homered but it wasn't enough as the Dawson Tigers edged Windey's Warriors 10-9.

Kevin Gemmell nabbed the win for Dawson (6-2) while Pagee was tagged with the loss for the Warriors (4-4).

The Couchiching Raiders got back into the win column as they doubled the Sabaskong Goldeneyes 10-5.

Sheldon Kelly Jr. garnered the win for the Raiders (5-3) over Daryl Beacham of the Goldeneyes (2-5).

Despite getting a pair of home runs, the Northwest Bay Chieftains remained winless with a 16-3 setback to the Barwick Blue Knights.

Brandon Pratt earned the win for Barwick (4-4).

Braden Smith and Ben Smith (inside-the-park) clubbed the homers while Don Smith was tagged with the loss for the Chieftains (0-7).

The Sabaskong Lakers topped the Manitou Thunderbirds 11-8.

Kyle Copenace was the victor for the Lakers (3-5) while Dan Servello took the loss for Manitou (2-6).

And the Stratton Eagles downed the Sight & Sound Wolves 5-2 for their fourth-straight win.

Guy Arpin garnered the win for Stratton (4-4) over Murray Armstrong of the Wolves (4-3).

Last night's games, the outcomes of which weren't known as of press time, pitted the Wolves against the Blue Knights, the Chieftains battled the Lakers, Manitou travelled to Stratton to take on the Eagles, the Warriors welcomed the Goldeneyes, the Tigers squared off against the Braves, and the Royals hosted the Raiders in Rainy River.

Tomorrow's games (weather permitting) will see the Eagles travel to VanJura to take on the Braves, Manitou will host Barwick, the Chieftains squaring off against the Goldeneyes, the Lakers hosting the Raiders, the Warriors making the trip to Rainy River to take on the Royals, and the Wolves will welcome the Tigers.
