PEEWEE DIVISION: Yankees erase eight run deficit to tie the Jays 11-11
The Yankees stormed back from an eight-run deficit to tie the Yankees 11-11 in a marathon Peewee Division round robin game at Diamond # 2 tonight.
With two outs and two runners on base in the bottom of the fourth inning, Brandon (8) of the Yankees hit a clutch single that brought home Thomas (15) with the tying run.
The Jays-Yankees game was suspended because the time limit of two hours had been reached. If the outcome of this suspended game should affect the Peewee Division round robin standings, the remaining ‘fifth’ inning of this suspended game will be completed at the earliest possible time.
Kudos to Brandon (8) of the Yankees who hit a solo home run that cleared the fence in right centrefield in the first inning. Brandon’s homer brought the fans in attendance to their feet as his Yankee teammates stormed out of the dugout to congratulate him as he rounded third base. His solo shot was the second homer hit in two nights at Diamond # 2. Yesterday, Adam (3) of the Red Sox hit a three-run homer in the first inning against the Yankees.
Thursday’s Score: Jays 11 Yankees 11* (Game suspended after four innings)
