Ottawa, ON – The Ottawa Titans (37-24) used a seven-run third inning in a 10-2 routing of the Lake Erie Crushers on Sunday afternoon, securing the series win.

After Tyler Jandron (win, 5-3) breezed through the opening two innings, the southpaw allowed only one hit while striking out two in his eleventh start of the season. The Titans jumped out in front with an RBI double to left-centre from Jason Dicochea, plating Dane Tofteland all the way from first base in the bottom half of the second.

Rookie Kyle Seebach (loss, 0-1) seemed comfortable in his first professional appearance on Sunday, until the wheels fell off in the third. The lefty walked seven in the inning, leading to twelve to come to the plate as the Titans poured it on with a seven spot. AJ Wright drove in one with a sac fly to right, until Dicohea, Rodrigo Orozco, and Mitsuki Fukuda recorded free passes with the bases juiced to bring home runs.

In the fifth, the Titans added a pair via a wild pitch from reliever Anthony Quattrochi, followed by a Fukuda sac fly, making it 10-0.

The lead was plenty for Jandron to cruise through the rest of his outing in the series finale, as the lefty totaled six innings, allowing just one run off a Kemuel Rivera sixth-inning homer, surrendering six hits, walking one, and striking out six for the win. Jandron is now 1-1 since being activated from the seven-day IL just before the All-Star break, where over 12 innings, the southpaw has allowed only two runs.

After Gavin Sonnier worked a perfect seventh, Connor Owings’ second homer of the series off Matt Terrones made it a 10-2 game in the eighth.

Battling the rain all afternoon, a downpour in the bottom of the eighth put an end to the contest after two reached. In the lopsided win, the Titans’ offence set a new season-high with eleven walks.

Also, the Titans have now taken six of seven rubber games this season while earning their fifteenth series victory.

Following an off day tomorrow, the Ottawa Titans open a three-game set on Tuesday, hosting the West Division-leading Washington Wild Things from Ottawa Stadium at 6:30 p.m to end the homestand.
