The Carillon Sultans scored eights run in the second inning as they went on to a 12-3 pounding of the Interlake Blue Jays in Manitoba Junior Baseball League action Wednesday night in Steinbach.

However, the game goes officially down as a 1-0 Carillon victory and a default by the Blue Jays after the game was called in the sixth inning when the Interlake coach was ejected from the game and the team had no other coaches available to take his place.

Nonethless, it was a strong performance for the Sultans as they improved their record to 8-11 and Interlake falls to 10-9 for the season. Last night's match-up was also a preview of a possible first round playoff clash between the two clubs. The sixth place Sultans will play either fourth place Interlake or fifth place Pembina Valley in the first round of the post-season.

Noah Vogt pitched a strong game for the Sultans, picking up which would have been the win. Keyan Grimard and Zach Giesbrecht each reached base three times for the Sultans in the blowout.

The Sultans are back in action Friday night in Steinbach as they entertain the second place Elmwood Giants at 7:00 p.m. at A.D. Penner Park. The Giants were 5-1 winners over the Altona Bisons on Wednesday.

Carillon will close out the MJBL regular season July 12 at Brandon versus the Marlins.
