Sight & Sound crush Stratton

The Sight & Sound Wolves (9-2) continued to flex their offensive muscle in Rainy River District Fastball League play, cruising to an easy 21-3 victory over Stratton at VanJura here last night.
The Wolves’ bats have caught fire again after suffering a mini-slump halfway through the season. Sight & Sound has scored an incredible 58 runs over the course of their last four games—an average of 14.5 runs a game.
Marcel Pagee got the Wolves off to a solid start last night by hitting a two-run homer in the bottom of the first inning for the early lead.
Andrew “Beeker” Watson led off the home half of the second with a triple and later scored on a Cole Kaemingh single. Kaemingh then came home on a Grant Swire single to make the score 4-0 after two.
Sheldon Bourassa doubled to open the third and advanced to third on a wild pitch. He came in to score on a sacrifice fly to make it 5-0.
Sight & Sound then put on a hitting clinic in the bottom of the fourth, scoring 10 runs against two Stratton pitchers.
Pagee started the inning with a triple and later scored on an infield single by starting pitcher Bob Andy. Paul Visser then crushed a two-run homer to make it 8-0.
Curtis Wepruk singled and Watson drew a walk to continue the rally, which chased Stratton’s starting pitcher from the game.
His replacement did not fare any better.
Singles by Kaemingh and Clayton “Beef” Windego made the score 10-0 before Bourassa doubled to increase the lead to 12 runs.
Bourassa moved to third on a wild pitch and then scored on a sacrifice fly by Swire.
A triple from Visser then scored Pagee and Andy, who’d both singled ahead of him, making the score 15-0.
Stratton finally recorded the final out of the inning, but the game was well out of reach by then.
Unlike the bottom of the fourth inning, in which Sight & Sound played small ball, the bottom of the fifth saw the Wolves swinging for the fences.
Watson hit his second homer of the season to make it 16-0. Then after Kaemingh singled, Bourassa belted a two-run monster shot off the light standard in left-centre field.
An Eric Shute single was followed by a Pagee double, bringing Andy back to the plate.
And the RRDFL’s home run leader didn’t disappoint, hitting a three-run blast—his eighth dinger of the season—to make it 21-0.
Stratton (5-6) scored three runs in the final two innings against Wolves’ relief pitcher Watson but it was far too little, too late.
Sight & Sound returns to action Tuesday night in Rainy River in a battle of the league’s top two teams.
Game time is 7 p.m.
Scores from the league’s three other games were not available prior to press time today.
