Guelph starter Claudio Custodio had another strong outing as he had yielded two earned runs off three hits and a walk in 6 2/3 innings. He struck out almost half the batters he faced as he whiffed 12 of the 25 batters he pitched to. Daniel Marques relieved for the final 1 1/3 innings and took the loss. He allowed two earned runs off a hit and two walks and he had a strikeout.

Barrie batters were limited to four hits in the game – a double and three singles.

Guelph batters had six hits – a double and single by Dalton Pompey and one single each by Conner Morro, Malik Collymore, Noah Roberts and Brando Leroux.

Barrie opened the scoring with a run in the first inning as Adam Odd’s single drove in Noal McGarry-Doyle. McGarry-Doyle had reached first base on a dropped third-strike pitch, then stole second.

The Royals responded with single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings.

Morro’s single knocked in Ethan Hammond with a run in the third, Hammond having reached on a walk.

Hammond’s sacrifice fly in the fourth drove Collymore home after the Royals greeted reliever Evan Soules with the singles by Collymore and Roberts.

Pompey scored the fifth-inning run. He doubled and went to third on a wild pitch and scored an unearned run on an error by Barrie third baseman Marcel Lacasse.

Barrie’s run in the seventh was scored by Royce Ando on a wild pitch by Marquez to Carson Burns, the first batter he faced after relieving Custodio with two out and runners on first and third. The run was charged to Custodio while Marquez threw eight pitches to Burns.

In the eighth, Marquez issued back-to-back one-out walks before Ryan Rijo hit a single to score a run and tie the game. The other run came in when Odd reached first on an error by first baseman Darren Shred.

The Royals committed two errors in the game, both in the eighth inning.

Barrie used four pitchers in the match. Starter Adam Khan went three innings, Soules went four and Aidan Rossel and Brandon Hillier each pitched an inning. They combined to yield three runs, two earned, off six hits and four walks and had five strikeouts. Rossel got the win and Hillier a save.

The result leaves Barrie in first place at 4-0 and the Royals fifth at 1-2.

The Royals are to host the Brantford Red Sox (0-3) Saturday at Hastings Stadium. Game time is 1 p.m.
