Shammies go up 3-2 in St. John’s senior final

The OMT Shamrocks got some big offence to back another solid pitching performance by a starter as they blasted and blanked the two-time defending champion RMM Gonzaga Vikings 10-0 in Game 5 of the St. John’s Molson senior baseball final Tuesday night.

The Shamrocks lead the best-of-seven series 3-2 and can take the 2016 title with another win Thursday night at St. Pat’s.

At St. Pat’s Ball Park, Shammies’ veteran hurler Bob Kent allowed only a Peter Madden single and two walks over six innings.

Kent, who struck out five, was backed by the bats of Scott Stockley, who hit a two-out home run as part of a five-run fourth inning, and Jay Warford, who had three hits, including a triple.

Tyler Vincent took the loss in a game that was shortened to six innings by the 10-run mercy rule.
