Patrick Burns pitched a three-hit, one-run complete game to guide Canada to the Bronze Medal in the Men’s Softball World Championship 2019. Today the Red and White team beat New Zealand, 2-1, and collected the 13th medal in the history of the event.




Burns made a terrific job from the circle this afternoon. He threw a total of 97 pitches to fan 12 hitters, with 2 walks and 3 hits in seven innings of work.

His only mistake was in the top of the fourth when Reilly Makea belted a solo shot to left field to put New Zealand in front. It was his first Men’s Softball World Championship career home run.

However, in the bottom of the fourth Canada tied the game with an RBI triple off the bat of Stephen Mullaley to the left field corner to plate Mathieu Roy from second base.

One inning later Canada scored the game-winning run. Jeff Ellsworth singled up the middle and one out later he stole second base. Then scored on an RBI single by Brad Ezekiel to make it 2-1.

New Zealand ended the MSWC in fourth place, outside the medal positions just for the third time in history.
