The Welland Jackfish jumped all over the Brantford Red Sox in the first inning and never looked back.

At home, the Jackfish used a 10-run first inning to defeat the Red Sox 22-7 at Welland Stadium.

Hogan Brown blasted a solo home run on the first pitch of the game thrown to a Jackfish batter. And the bats continued with the Jackfish hitting four doubles and a single during the first-inning onslaught.

One of the game’s highlights came when Tyler Dupuis added a three-run inside-the-park home run in the fourth inning.

The Jackfish added three more runs in the fifth inning, five in the seventh and scored once in the third.

Scott Gillespie pitched six solid innings to pick up the win. He struck out three batters, giving up four runs on six hits.

Christian Herrera was credited with the loss.

Spencer Jamieson, Matthew Fabian and Jeremie Veilleux each had two hits for the Red Sox.

The Jackfish (4-2) will now host the London Majors Saturday at 6:05 p.m. The Red Sox (1-6) are on the road Friday against the London Majors at 7:35 p.m.
