Reds smack Hawks

A fourteen run explosion was just what the doctor ordered for the Thornhill Reds offense, as the bats heated up in a 14-7 home win Wednesday night against Newmarket.

Sean Sutton had a four hit night, driving in five and scoring a pair of runs. Rookie Zach Lampreia also had a big night. The youngster went deep, added two more hits, five RBI, and worked a 1-2-3 inning on the hill.

Chadwick Cameron(1-2) picked up the win in relief of starter Josh Appel, who left after facing two hitters in the fifth.

With the win the Reds improved to 6-1 at home, and 7-3 in GTBL play. Next action is Wednesday July 5, when the East York Bulldogs visit Thornhill at 730pm.


Reds bats quiet in road loss

The Thornhill Reds got a great pitching performance from rookie Mack Major(0-2), but couldn't get the offense going in a 3-1 road loss in East York.

It was a tough loss to swallow for the young righty who fired seven strong innings, striking out seven and allowing just two runs. The Bulldogs did not have a base runner until a fourth inning lead off walk, and their first hit came in the fifth, a single from catcher Ben Anderson.

Gianfranco Morello was the only Red with two hits, and Sean Sutton added a key RBI double in the eighth inning, where Thornhill pulled within one with runners at second and third and just one out. East York's bullpen cleaned up the final five outs of the night, handing the Reds their third loss of the regular season.

The Reds next action is Wednesday at home, where Josh Appel will take the ball against the visiting Newmarket Hawks.
