Game Post composed with files from Matt Byrnes and Peter Roy
On a quaint summer evening at Christie Pits Diamond 2, the Royals edged the Jays 11-10 in a taut four innings of Peewee Division action.
Down 10-7 in the bottom of the fourth, the Royals clawed back with two runs to make it a one run game.
With the Jays leading 10-9, Connor (2) of the Royals drove in the tying and winning runs with a massive two RBI line drive into deep right field.
Here are the highlights:
- Beca (6) of the Jays had five RBIs, with 2 doubles, a single, and walk in her four at-bats.
- Griff (3), a call up from the Mosquito Division, contributed with a hit and a walk.
- Jack had two hits and had two RBI’s, while pitching two solid innings allowing five runs.
- Sam (7) also had a strong game on the mound and at the plate.
- Karl (5) had a hit, a walk, and caught two strong innings behind the plate.
- Jeremy (15) was a force on the base paths, stealing five bases, scoring three times.
- Yuki (4) also stole three bases and scored three times.
- Special thanks to Jack from the Lizzies who played outfield for the entire game for both teams. He made a great catch off Jack from the Jays in the 1st inning. It would have been a two bagger for sure.
