Beneath a ceiling of picturesque blue and sunny skies, the Annette A’s defeated our Toronto Playgrounds Rookie Ball Selects 12-1 in six innings of Etobicoke Baseball Association (EBA) Select Loop action this evening at Ravina Gardens.

Here are the highlights:

  • TP led off the game in the top of the first but couldn’t get any runs despite a single by Jordan W. (1) who was left stranded on base.
  • Annette charged out of the gates in the bottom of the first by scoring three runs on four hits to stake themselves to a 3-0 lead. The A’s offensive attack was highlighted by a home run by Tristen (42).
  • In the top of the second, TP scratched out two hits by Cassius (5) and Michael (12) but couldn’t plate any runs.
  • The A’s stretched their lead to 6-0 with three additional runs on four hits in the bottom of the second.
  • TP finally got on the scoreboard in the top of the third! Lucas (6) got things started with a single. Thomas (23) moved him around with a single and then Christian (7) got an RBI single to get TP a run.
  • Annette was held to one run on one hit in the bottom of the third as they held a 7-1 lead.
  • Toronto Playgrounds continued to play three more innings but was unable to score any more runs. TP only managed to garner three more hits by Sammy P (11), Lucas (6) and Emmett (8).
  • Going for the jugular, Annette managed to tack on five more insurance runs in the final three innings to finish the game winning 12-1.
