Beneath a checkered duvet of sunny and cloudy skies, the White Sox prevailed 5-2 over the Twins in a four inning Toronto Playgrounds House League Baseball Tournament Mosquito Division round robin game this evening at Christie Pits Diamond 2.
Here is a brief recap of the proceedings:
- White Sox starter Payton (6) struck out two in the top of the first to keep the Twins off the scoring ledger.
- The White Sox staked themselves to an early 3-0 lead in the bottom half of the first when Will (13), Cohen (10) and Nicky (7) came home to roost.
- In a gritty foray on the hill, Twins starter Charles (12) struck out two White Sox in the first frame.
- White Sox reliever Will tallied a pop out and strikeout in the top of the second to keep the Twinkies in their cellophane wrapper.
- Twins reliever (7) mowed down three in the bottom of the second to keep the White Sox off the scoreboard and in the laundry hamper.
- Refusing to go quietly into the night, the Twins rallied for a pair in the top of the third to slice the margin to 3-2. James (2) and Charles reached base to open the inning and would subsequently come homeward to do the shimmy, shimmy, shake.
- Unfazed, White Sox reliever Henry (3) chalked up two strikeouts and a groundout in the third to quash the Twins rebellion.
- Not to be outdone, the White Sox answered back with a run in the bottom of the third to widen their advantage to 4-2 when Henri (4) came home with the peameal bacon.
- Twins reliever Isaac (14) rang up a strikeout, fly out and a groundout in the third to subdue the White Sox insurgency.
- In the top portion of the fourth, White Sox reliever Momo (12) tallied two strikeouts and a groundout to keep the Twins offence stuck in Minneapolis.
- The White Sox tacked on an insurance run in the bottom of the fourth when Payton came home with the Oreo Double Stuffed Cookies.
- Nonplussed, Twins reliever Osler (15) struck out three in the fourth to bring the curtain down on the proceedings.
