Royals sweep a pair on the weekend (5 photos)

Extend winning streak to four

The Guelph Royals swept both weekend games and have now won four in a row.

Sunday in Brantford, Brett Lawson threw eight innings and Steven Dressler tossed the ninth as the  Royals blanked the Brantford Red Sox 7-0 on four hits.

Starting pitcher Abel De Los Santos battled for the Red Sox, taking his team into the seventh inning behind just 1-0. Guelph scored three times in the seventh and three times in the ninth en route to their 11th win against 11 losses.

Veteran Sean Reilly keeps on rolling for the Royals. He hit a pair of home runs to give him nine on the year and is batting .478.

Nic Burdett had the only extra base hit for the Red Sox, a double. It was Brantford’s 18th straight loss after starting the year with a victory.

Saturday at Hastings Atadium the Royals came from behind to down the Kitchener Panthers 6-5.

Angel Villalona hit a two-run blast with two outs in the seventh inning to give Guelph the lead for good.

Jeff MacLeod went 2-for-4 with a solo home run,  Reilly went 3-for-4 and scored twice, while Darius Barlas, Ethan Hammond and Justin Interisano each had a hit and drove in a run, and Ethan Mohan singled twice and scored.

Yunior Yambatis (1-2) went seven innings, allowing five runs on five hits with five walks and three strikeouts.

Steven Dressler recorded the last six outs for his second save. He struck out three and didn't allow a baserunner.

For Kitchener, Jeff Hunt singled three times and drove in three while walking once.

Guelph plays in Hamilton on Friday then hosts Toronto Saturday in the first Saturday night game, a 7:35 p.m. start.
