In the nightcap, Taylor Pappin struck out 10 over 6 innings pitched for the win as the Saints cruised to an 8-1 victory.

On Saturday, George Brown ran out of coins as they hosted St Clair at Wishing Well Park in Scarborough. The Saints forced two mercy decisions over the Huskies, 14-0 and 17-0 respectively.

Kyle Breitner struck out 11 over 5 innings in game 1 while Miguel Cienfuegos retired 8 on strikes to wrap up the weekend.
