Game Post composed with file from Paul Renton
On a pristine midsummer day at Carmen Bush Park, the top seeded Martingrove (2) White Sox topped our TP Minor Peewee Selects 12-2 in a four inning TBA round robin playoff showdown.
Playing in their second round robin game, the Toronto Playgrounds Minor Peewees experienced their first playoff loss at the TBA West Select Loop Peewee Championship Tournament.
Here are the highlights:
- TP jumped out an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first. Keying the offense was an RBI single from Sasha (28)
- Martingrove 2 rallied in the bottom of the first to tie the game. However, TP starter Brian (25) pitched strongly and held the White Sox to just two runs.
- The White Sox scored three runs in the bottom of the second to stretch their lead to 5-2.
- Martingrove 2 broke the game open with a six run third and widened their advantage to 11-2.
- With the mercy rule in effect, the game was called in the bottom of the fourth when the White Sox scored their twelfth run of the proceedings.
At press time, the Minor Peewees (1-1) are currently awaiting the completion of several other round robin games to determine who their next round robin opponent will be later this afternoon.
Under the double knockout formula used at the TBA West Select Loop Peewee Championship playoffs, another loss by the Minor Peewees will eliminate them from further play.
On tap…the TP Major Peewee Selects (1-0) will battle the Martingrove (2) White Sox in a pivotal round robin game of the undefeated at Carmen Bush Park at 3:45 p.m.
