Reds headed back to final

The Thornhill Reds moved one step closer to repeating as GTBL champions, eliminating the East York Bulldogs with a 5-4 come from behind home win. A two run, two out double off the bat of Russ McGibbon proved to be the winning blow, as the Reds swept the GTBL semi final two games to none.

Lee Choiniere(1-0) worked two scoreless frames in relief of starter Josh Appel, and earned the victory. Chadwick Cameron faced three hitters in the ninth to secure the victory and recorded his first save of the year.

The Reds await the winner of the Pickering and Leaside series, which will determine who Thornhill will meet in the final. The Reds are seeking their fourth GTBL title in five seasons.
