BRANTFORD -- Adam Jafine struck out 16, and four different Brantford players drove in a run as the Red Sox doubled Kitchener 4-2 Saturday night at Arnold Anderson Stadium to sweep the best-of-three quarter-final.

Liam Sutherland went 2-for-3 with an RBI, and Nick Burdett, Jason Pineda and Zach Lampreia drove in the other runs. Jon Dziomba went 2-for-4 with a run and stolen base. 

Jafine (1-0) went the distance, scattering four hits and walking two in a 135-pitch effort. Both runs he allowed were unearned. 

Brantford will face first-place London in the semifinal. 

Andy Leader and Keegan Marsden each had two hits for the Panthers. Stephen Gade (0-1) allowed three runs (one earned) on six hits over 5.2 innings. He walked four and struck out four.
