Game Post composed with file from Brian Vasoff and Paul Kelly
Under a canvas of serene skies for miles around, our Toronto Playgrounds Minor Peewee Selects defeated the York Gold 17-5 in five innings of Etobicoke Baseball Association (EBA) Select play this evening at Smythe Park to earn their first win of the 2016 season.
Here are the highlights:
- TP Minor Peewee pitchers Lucas, Josh and Javert combined to limit York to just one run in the first four innings.
- Firing on all cylinders, the TP offense drove in fourteen runs in the first four frames.
- York rallied for four in the fifth inning.
- Josh threw a solid three up and three down inning by using an economical nine pitches to set down the Gold batting order and by fielding a pair of ground balls and getting the outs to first base.
The TP Minor Peewee Selects (1-1) continue their road trip on the EBA Select circuit when they travel to Carmen Bush Park on Wednesday, May 18 to play the Martingrove White Sox at 6:30 p.m.
