Beneath tranquil summer skies, the Annette A’s edged our Toronto Playgrounds Major Peewee Selects 7-6 in five innings of Etobicoke Baseball Association (EBA) play this evening at Ravina Gardens.
Trailing 6-5, TP rallied for a run in the top of the fifth to even the proceedings. Jack H. (27) delivered a RBI sacrifice hit to bring home the tying run.
However, the A’s punched across a run in the bottom of the fifth to capture the victory.
Here are some additional highlights:
Annette jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the first inning.
TP starter Sasha (28) struck out three A’s in the bottom of the first.
The A’s tack on a run in the bottom of the second to widen their lead to 3-0.
The Major Peewees answered with a pair of runs in the top of the third to trim the deficit to one. After a single by Sasha, Ben (4) delivered a RBI single and Tyler (42) stroked a RBI sacrifice.
In the bottom of the third, Annette replies with three to widen their advantage to 6-2.
TP answers back with three runs in the top of the fourth to trail 6-5. After a Jack H. single, Owen (5) and Max (17) follow with respective RBI singles. Next, Sasha powers a RBI triple.
TP reliever Tyler (42) pitches a scoreless bottom of the fifth with a two strikeout effort.
The Major Peewee Selects (7-4) continue their road trip on Tuesday, July 29 when they travel to Richview Park to play the Martingrove 1 White Sox at 7:00 p.m.
