HOW IT HAPPENED
- Australia jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first as they cashed in a lead off double on a two-out RBI single, while a passed ball and wild pitch brought in another run.
- For the second time in as many games, OF Isaac Deveaux (Montréal, Que.) drilled a solo home run over the left field wall. This time he sent a 1-0 offering beyond the fence that came in the bottom of third to put Canada on the scoreboard.
- The Aussies pulled ahead by two in the top of the fifth plating a run on an RBI single up the middle that came with the bases loaded. With one down in the frame a single followed by two walks issued by Canadian starter Michael Brettell (Fonthill, Ont.) made the bases full.
- Canada made it a one run game again in the seventh when Demi Orimoloye (Orleans, Ont.) led off the frame with a double down the left field line and scored when Andrew Yerzy (Toronto, Ont.) cashed him in on a single to centre.
- The Aussies regained their two run lead, however when they scored a run in the eighth on a single to shallow centre dropped into “no man’s land” allowing a runner from third to score. Reliever Matteo Vincelli (Burnaby, BC), who entered the game in the seventh, issued a lead off walk that moved to second on a wild pitch and ended up on third after a ground out.
-With one out and Brad Aldred (Whitby, Ont.) at the plate, a 3-2 offering wash crushed over the fence in right-centre for a solo homer that brought Canada back to within one run of the lead.

JNT HIGHLIGHTS
- For the second game in a row, Canada slugged two homers with Deveaux belting a solo shot in the third for his second long ball of the week, while Aldred drilled a solo shot in the eighth.
- William Sierra (Montréal, Que.) worked a scoreless inning in the sixth when he took over for starter Michael Brettell. He gave up one hit and registered one strikeout.
- Canadian starter Michael Brettell worked five innings and went through a stretch of three scoreless frames from the second to the fourth where he surrendered a pair of hits, but no runs.
- Reliever Matteo Vincelli also produced two scoreless frames in his three innings of work. He gave up one run on one hit and a walk, while registering one strikeout.

Comment

Adam Morissette

Adam Morissette was born and raised in Ottawa, Ont. where sports were always a big part of his life whether it be baseball, hockey or football, including playing two seasons as centre for coach Pat Sheahan with the Queen's University Golden Gaels in Kingston -- Canada's first capital. Morissette has always have been passionate about baseball and has fond memories of attending Montreal Expos games with his father, Mike, and listening to his recollection of watching baseball in Montreal at Jarry Park and stories about Gary Carter, Rusty Staub and Steve Rodgers. Morissette could often be found in a near empty Lynx Stadium watching Joe Siddall, Bert Heffernan, Curtis Pride and Jamie Carroll soaking in a beautiful summer night at the ballpark. He was a member of the provincial championship Orleans Red Sox Little League teams also played with the Ottawa White Sox for the late Lyle Anderson and Todd Burke in OBA Midget and American Legion play and the Capital City Crushers (NCBL), primarily as a catcher. Has also spent time coaching Little League in Orleans and South Ottawa. He wanted to turn his passion into a career and enrolled in Sport Business Management at Algonquin College in Ottawa in 2007. After working for the Ottawa 67's OHL team as the Ticket Coordinator, Morissette jumped at the opportunity to become the Media and Public Relations Coordinator with Baseball Canada in 2010. He loves watching and reading about pro, college or amateur baseball and is a long-time subscriber to Baseball America. Morissette is thrilled about the idea of writing about baseball and is interested in covering any story that his car -- and time -- will allow him to cover.
