BARRIE – It was a dominating performance that moved the Barrie Baycats one win from a fourth straight Intercounty Baseball League title. 

Claudio Custodio tossed a complete-game one-hitter, and the Baycats' batters pounded out 19 hits in a 15-0 win over the Kitchener Panthers Sunday night at Coates Stadium. 

Barrie leads the best-of-seven series 3-0 and can clinch Tuesday night in Kitchener.

Custodio (1-0) struck out 13. He was nearly perfect, save for a leadoff single to Colin Gordner and a walk to Yorbis Borroto in the third inning. 

Offensively, Ryan Rijo homered twice and drove in six. Kevin Atkinson went 3-for-6 with three RBI and two runs, Jordan Castaldo had four hits and two RBI, Kyle DeGrace drove in a pair and stole a base, Ryan Spataro singled, doubled and had two RBI and three runs, while Branfy Infante and Brandon Dhue each had two hits. The duo combined to score three times. 

Panthers starter Sean Ratcliffe (1-2) took the loss, allowing eight runs on eight hits with five walks and three strikeouts over 3.2 innings.
