Closson thumps Wheatsheaf

After a convincing 6-0 win over Wheatsheaf in their home opener last Thursday, Gord Closson Forest Products will be back on their home field in Glenora next Tuesday against Baker Supply.

Craig Snyder led off the first inning last Thursday with a solo home run, and Dan Whiteford swatted one of his own just two batters later.

In the fourth inning, Brad Robinson came to the plate with the bases loaded, and blasted a grand slam, putting the game out of reach for Wheatsheaf.

"They’re three good hitters," manager Joe DiLalla said of the home run hitters. "Give them a pitch, and they’re going to put it away."

Whiteford was 2-for-2 with two walks, and Snyder was 2-for-4 with one free pass. Snyder also pitched seven shutout innings for the win, striking out seven and allowing just two hits.

DiLalla expects a good game from Baker Supply next Tuesday after his team beat them 12-2 in their first meeting this season.

"They’ll come back with a stronger team," he said. "That’s what usually happens. The second time around, they know better."
