The Hub City Pita Pit Brewers saw their season end on Tuesday night with a 6-1 loss to the Charlottetown Islanders on the road.
The Islanders swept the best-of-five series 3-0.
Charlottetown scored three runs in the first inning and rolled to the win. Each of the first two games of the series were decided by one run.
In the bottom of the first, leadoff hitter Jordan Duffy drew a walk from Hub City starter Martin Poirier and then singles by Brody MacDonald and Morgan MacLean, who drew the first RBI, gave the Islanders a 1-0 lead.
Alex Abbott then singled home MacDonald and Will Connolly’s sacrifice fly brought in MacLean for a 3-0 lead Charlottetown wouldn’t relinquish.
Hub City scored its lone run in the fourth after a double by designated hitter Martin Roussel and two straight outs brought Roussel home.
“They came out more ready than us. We were down after the first inning, no cheering, just head shakes after a ball call. It’s been that way all year,” said Roussel. “We played good baseball, it was all mental.”
The Islanders added two runs in the fifth on a two-run single by Josh Kelly and another run in the sixth off Brewers reliever Glenn Marks.
Charlottetown starter Taylor Larkin went 52⁄3 innings for the win, giving up five hits and one run. Poirier went five innings in the loss, surrendering nine hits and five runs.
MacLean went 3-for-3 with a walk and Kelly and Connolly were both 2-for-3 for the Islanders.
