Game Summary edited with file from Marco Bianchi
Under a canvas of hazy and sunny skies, our Toronto Playgrounds Mosquito Selects won all three of their round robin games on Saturday to advance to the semi-final round of the Vaughan Vikings Mosquito Select Tournament.
In an early morning game at Vaughan Grove Diamond 4, TP defeated the Orangeville Bengals 8-6 in five innings. Down 6-4, TP rallied with four runs in the top of the fifth to usurp the Bengals. TP closer Theo (17) pitched a dominant bottom of the fifth to seal the deal. TP starter Tavaris (55) three strong innings while surrendering only four runs to the potent Orangeville batting order.
In a Friday night round robin affair that was suspended after three innings due to lightning, TP defeated the Barrie Red Sox 15-6 early this afternoon at Vellore Village to win their second game at the tourney.
To cap off a big day, TP prevailed 12-8 over the Ottawa Cubs in a late afternoon proceeding at Vaughan Grove Diamond 3 to win their third round robin game and punch a ticket into a Sunday (July 10) morning semi-final playoff round game against the Barrie Red Sox at Vaughan Grove Diamond 4 at 9:00 a.m.
Additional updates from the tourney will be posted as they become available.
