The Alliston Athletics just couldn’t catch a break in Sunday night’s game against the Bolton Dodgers.
After giving up a run in the first inning the Athletics fell behind and failed to score for the rest of the game.
They had plenty of chances but just couldn’t finish.
The second inning saw Ray Gonzalez lead off with a double that was followed up with a sacrifice bunt that put men on second and third and a walk that loaded the bases, but the inning ended before they could capitalize.
The third inning saw wild throw to first that put a Bolton player out with a man on third base and two out. The inning ended on a fly to deep right field.
The Dodgers went ahead by three in the fourth inning when they loaded the bases and a hit brought in a scoring run.
A third Bolton run came across the plate when an Alliston pitch went wild and gave the man at third base enough time to make it home.
A fourth Dodgers runner scored on a hit when the play was made to first base and the third base runner made the dash across the plate.
The night wrapped up with a later Dodgers run to end the game 5-0.
The Athletics are looking to break a losing streak that has plague them for much of the season.
On June 23 they played to a 9-9 tie against the Lisle Astros but they are still looking to get another game in the win column.
They will be back at their home diamond at Riverdale Park on Sunday, July 2, to host the Midland Indians.
Game time is 8 p.m.
