Under serene evening skies, the Brampton Blue Jays defeated our Toronto Playgrounds Major Peewee Selects 14-5 in 3 ½ innings at Sesquicentennial Park in their first game at the Brampton Minor Baseball Incorporated (BMBI) Select Tournament.
Trailing 4-1 after the first inning, several TP fielding errors in the bottom of the second allowed the Blue Jays to score nine runs and pull away for the victory.
Here are some additional highlights:
Zack (32) delivered a RBI sacrifice hit to put the Major Peewee Selects up 1-0 in the top of the first.
TP starter Sasha (28) held Brampton to four runs in the bottom of the first.
The Blue Jays seized upon a lot of TP errors in the bottom of the second to score nine and vault ahead 13-1.
Owen (5) singled in the top of the third for TP.
TP reliever Jack K. (13) holds Brampton to one run in the bottom of the third by inducing the Blue Jays to hit a pair of infield pop ups to Zack.
- Toronto Playgrounds scores four in the top of the fourth to trim the deficit to nine. Tyler (42) tripled and Jack H. (27) stroked a single. Following a RBI single by Sasha, Arlo (7) delivered a 2 RBI double.
