Split their two weekend games with Toronto and Welland, play five times this week

The Guelph Royals continued their up and down season on the weekend, splitting their two games.

The Royals are now 7-7 and sit in fourth place in the Intercounty Baseball League standings.

Sunday they lost 3-2 on the road to the Welland Jackfish as Welland scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to pull out the win.

Darius Barlas homered for Guelph and Jeff McLeod had two of the Royals' five hits.

Yunior Yambatis pitched well for Guelph before faltering in the eighth. He went seven and a third innings, allowing just four hits while striking out three.

On Saturday at Hastings Stadium, Josh Garton doubled home the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning as the Royals downed the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-5.

Sean Reilly and Angel Villallona hit back-to-back homers for Guelph in the fifth inning.

Winning pitcher was Brett Lawson, who dealt three perfect innings in relief.

Guelph has a busy week coming up, hosting Welland Tuesday night, hosting Hamilton Thursday night, playing in Kitchener Friday, hosting London Saturday afternoon and playing in Toronto on Sunday.
