Thornhill Reds Senior Baseball

Reds open Vaughan tourney with win

Russ McGibbon(1-0) made the most of his first start on the hill in 2017, firing six strong innings in a 6-2 Reds win, which opened their title defense of the Vaughan Senior Tournament.

A four run third inning was keyed by back to back RBI doubles for Argenis Paz and Gianfranco Morello, as the Reds added two more late runs to take the opener.

Chadwick Cameron will go Saturday morning against the Newmarket Hawks, and later in the afternoon the Reds face Burlington, in the final game of pool play.

 

Reds now 4-1 in GTBL action

The Thornhill Reds improved to 4-1 in the GTBL regular season, after a 6-4 home win against the Leaside Leafs on Wednesday night.

Working five innings for the win was right hander Dan Lehmkuhl(2-0), who surrendered four hits and two unearned runs. Mack Major recorded the final four outs for his first save of 2017.

It was a three hit night for Russ McGibbon, who continued a red hot sophomore season for Thornhill.

The Reds are right back at it against the Leafs on Thursday, as they pay a visit to Talbot Park at 730PM. Mitch Sutton takes the ball for the Reds, looking to sweep the home and home series.

 

Reds falter late

The Thornhill Reds took a 3-1 lead to the sixth inning and couldn't finish the job against the St Jean Pirates, and got walked off 4-3 in seven.

Mack Major(0-1) suffered the loss in relief of starter Josh Appel who left after four innings of work.

The Reds fail to advance to Sunday, and will pick things back up at home on Wednesday night, the first of a back to back against the Leaside Leafs.

   

Reds stumble in Quebec/Ontario opener

The Thornhill Reds fell 6-3 to the Capital City Reds after a couple costly errors and untimely hitting led to the Reds demise, falling behind 6-1 by the fourth in a seven inning game.

Thornhill scrapped late but couldn't get ace Chadwick Cameron(0-1) off the hook. Sean Sutton and Zach Lampreia had two hits a piece for Thornhill, who will need a big win and some help on Saturday in order to play on Sunday.

Josh Appel(1-0) takes the ball in game two when the Reds face St Jean, a team he beat in 2016 in Quebec. Action starts tomorrow at Bishops Cross at 9:30am and features five games, finishing up with Thornhill/St. Jean at 730pm.

 

Reds mercy Bulldogs

The Thornhill Reds used seven pitchers ahead of the Quebec weekend, en route to a seven inning 13-3 mercy win at home against the East York Bulldogs on Wednesday night.

Eric Wakeman(1-0) was credited with the win, as the Reds staff allowed just one earned run on the night while combining to strike out none.

Jacob Hillier led the charge with a three hit, five RBI night. Rookies Gianfranco Morello and Zach Lampreia were busy at the top of the Reds order, and scored four times each in the lopsided win.

The win puts the Reds at 3-1 on the season, and they roll into the Quebec exchange ready to rock.
