Thornhill Reds Senior Baseball

Reds head to Vaughan tournament on three game win streak

A booming two out, three run double off the bat of Reds catcher Kris Fielding put the home side ahead in the bottom of the seventh inning, guiding the Reds to a 5-3 home win against the Pickering Red Sox.

Fielding finished the night with three hits, and raised his average to a gaudy .433 in GTBL play. Zach Lampreia(1-0) was the winner in three innings of excellent relief work, Lee Choiniere and Mitch Sutton also chipped in with a scoreless frame each out of the pen.

Josh Appel started and worked two scoreless frames, a small tune up before he takes the ball Friday night against Oakville in the Vaughan tournament opener. Besides the A's, the Reds will also see the Erindale Cardinals out of COBA, and the Kendal Eagles, who play out of the OSBA loop.


Thornhill downs Leaside

The Thornhill Reds won 9-3 at home Wednesday night against the Leaside Leafs, and continue to lead the GTBL standings after a 2-0 week which saw them improve to 6-2 on the season.

Mack Major(3-0) was the winner over six innings of work, and Gianfranco Morello homered yet again for the Reds, his third tater of the year.

The Reds are off for week, and will host Pickering next Wednesday before heading to Vaughan for the annual Fathers Day weekend tournament June 15-17.


Reds hammer Hawks

The Thornhill Reds trekked up the 404 on Tuesday night and mercied the Newmarket Hawks 16-4 to move into first place in the GTBL standings at 5-2.

Lee Choiniere(1-0) worked two innings in relief to secure the win, with Josh Appel and Pat Orr working scoreless frames to ensure a seven inning final. Russ McGibbon had four hits and four RBI, including his second home run of 2018. Gianfranco Morello continued a white hot year, going 3-5, hitting his second long ball, and scoring three times.

The Reds are right back at it Wednesday night, when they host the Leaside Leafs at Bishops Cross. Thornhill will be looking to avenge an opening night 3-2 loss to the Leafs, and will send Mack Major(2-0) to the mound.


Rads falter late in loss to Pickering

The Thornhill Reds wasted a great start from Adam Jafine, blowing a 3-1 seventh inning lead to Pickering in a 12-4 home loss.

The Reds rookie lefty worked five strong innings, allowing just an unearned run, while striking out two. The bullpen struggled late, with Ben Brown(0-1) suffering the loss in an inning plus of work.

Kravice Batts had three hits in the loss, and Gianfranco Morello continued a blazing hot start with a 2-3 effort.


Reds win in East York

The Thornhill Reds won their fourth straight, a 9-4 road win at Stan Wadlow Park in East York on Monday night.

Mack Major(2-0) tossed six solid innings for his second win of the year. The Reds then sent Jeremiah Groulx, Hunter Greenough and Pat Orr to the mound for an inning of work each in securing the win. The Thornhill bullpen was fantastic, striking out eight of the nine outs they needed to record, while surrendering just one walk and two hits.

Argenis Paz had three hits to lead the offence, and Zach Lampreia went 2-3, driving in a run as well.

The Reds are back at it Wednesday night at home against Pickering, where Adam Jafine will make his first GTBL start for Thornhill.
