A dozen games into the Intercounty Baseball League season, and the Kitchener Panthers (9-3) continue to show they’re going to be tough to beat.

They won their third game in a row last night, 5-2 over the Brantford Red Sox (1-5).

Tanner Nivins led the way once again, knocking in two home runs and three RBI.

He now leads the league in HR and his .447 batting average also paces the IBL.

Christian Hauck pitched seven innings for the Panthers, striking out four to get his third win of the year.

He gave up five hits, two earned runs and six walks.

With the win, the Panthers go into the weekend on top of the IBL standings, just a half game up on the London Majors (8-3).

Their next game is Sunday afternoon at Jack Couch Park, when the Guelph Royals (3-6) come to town.

First pitch goes just after 2 p.m.
