Game Post composed with file from Dora Parks and Paul Ungerman
Beneath a serene ceiling of warm and humid skies, the Toronto Playgrounds Major Peewee Selects defeated the York Riverdogs 11-0 in a 3 ½ inning 2019 Etobicoke Baseball Association (EBA) Mosquito Select Championship Tournament round robin qualification playoff game tonight at Christie Pits Diamond 2.
Here is a brief recap:
- With a cannon shot across the bow, TP staked itself to an early 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first. After Charlie (8) drew a one out walk, Cooper (3) reached base on a York error that put two ducklings on the pond. Milo (27) entered the batter’s box and crushed a woolly mammoth three run me run blast to left field that ricocheted off the tall light pole at Dominico Field and bounced back onto the field.
- Going for the jugular, Toronto Playgrounds scored another seven in the bottom of the third to increase its advantage to 10-0.
- In a stellar effort, TP starter William (33) pitched a complete game no hitter against York. Over the duration of four innings, William surrendered no runs while striking out eight Riverdogs.
With the victory against York, TP finishes the round robin qualification portion of the tourney with an unblemished 3-0 record. TP advances to a 9:30 a.m. Quarter-Final game tomorrow morning against the undefeated Annette Black at Ravina Gardens.
Earlier this afternoon, TP cruised to a dominating 25-1 four inning round robin playoff game win over the Annette Red at Ravina Gardens to earn its second round robin victory at the tourney.
Here are a few highlights:
- TP utilized a twelve hit attack to bury Annette Red. After staking themselves to a 7-0 lead through two innings, TP exploded for a ten run tsunami in the third inning to pull away for the win.
- Milo drove in five runs to power the TP offensive machine against Annette Red.
- Over the course of four solid frames, TP starter Rocco (99) and reliever Cooper combined to blank the Riverdogs.
