COTE ST. LUC, Que. — Simon Brisebois was a one-man show, proving equally efficient on the mound and in the batter’s box as the Universite de Montreal routed McGill 9-2 on Day 2 at the Canadian Collegiate Baseball Association championship tournament, held at Parc Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Saturday.  .

Brisebois went 4-for-5 at the plate, driving in a game-high three RBIs, while also pitching a complete game six-hitter with no earned runs allowed.

The result left both teams with a 2-1 record after round-robin play and sets up another rendez-vous between second-seeded Montreal and third-seeded McGill (2-1) in a sudden-death semifinal on Sunday at Lake Road Park in suburban Dollard des Ormeaux. First pitch goes at 10 a.m.

The cross-town rivals battled five times during the regular season, with McGill winning the season series 3–2, thanks to a 9–8 extra-innings thriller won by the Redmen in the rubber match on Oct. 1.

Concordia, which finished atop the pool with a 3-0 record, will meet the winner of a Saturday tie-breaker between Saint Mary’s (1-2) and UNB (1-2), in the other semi.

Montreal racked up 13 hits and took advantage of four McGill errors to score at least one run in five straight innings, including a four-run explosion from UdeM, giving them a 5–0 lead by the third inning.

McGill starter. Nolan Werre of St. Albert, Alta., was saddled with the loss. he allowed seven hits, three walks and three earned runs in just two innings of work. He was relieved by Simon Ehrmantraut of Vancouver, B.C., who gave up four hits, and rookie Arravinth Anantharajah of Ajax, Ont., who surrendered the other two hits.

Anantharajah, was one of six Redmen to collect one hit, along with James Vardy, second-baseman Jamie Fuoco, catcher Steven Rintoul, third-baseman Robert Sedin and shortstop Tyler Welence.
