Silvercreeks rally for victory in home opener

GUELPH – The Guelph Silvercreeks fell behind early, then rallied to top the Hamilton Junior Cardinals 12-7 in their Central Ontario junior baseball league home opener Wednesday night at Hastings Stadium.

Hamilton scored six of its runs in the first three innings, but three runs for the Creeks in the bottom of the third cut the gap to a single run.

Noah Roberts clobbered a homer for the hosts in the fifth and then the Creeks scored five runs in the seventh to shoot ahead.

The win was the third in as many league outings for the Creeks.

The locals are to host the Burlington Junior Bulls (0-1) Friday at 7:30 p.m. at Hastings Stadium.
