Reds start big stretch with mercy win

The lead up to the 2017 Provincial Elimination Tournament is a busy one for the Thornhill Reds. The Reds play five game in six days as they prepare for the big weekend in London which is quickly approaching.

Thornhill improved to 12-4 in league play Wednesday night, with a lopsided 14-0 win against Newmarket. Chadwick Cameron(3-2) surrendered two hits over six innings to collect the win, while Joe Presutti blasted a grand slam to lead the offense. Kris Fielding hit his second home run of 2017, and finished with three hits and four RBI.

Saturday night the Reds will start Josh Appel(3-1) and Dan Lehmkuhl(5-0) when they travel to Centennial Park for a double dip. Mack Major(0-3) will toe the rubber Sunday in Pickering, Monday's starter in East York is still up in the air.


Reds go 2-1 at the Hap

The Thornhill Reds 2-1 record on the weekend wasn't quite enough and after allowing 10 runs in the round robin, they failed to qualify for Sunday's quarter finals.

The Reds won the first two contests 6-2 over Ilderton and 12-2 over Burlington, but a 6-2 loss to Etobicoke prevented the Reds from advancing.

Thornhill next plays Wednesday night at home against the Newmarket Hawks, where Chadwick Cameron will make the start on the hill for the Reds.


Reds win in Leaside

The Thornhill Reds won the first half of a home and home with the Leaside Leafs, 3-2 on Monday night at Talbot Park.

Josh Appel(2-1) fired two innings in relief of starter Mack Major in picking up the win, while rookie Peter Joseph fanned two of three batters he faced in the ninth for his first save of the season.

The Reds are now 10-4 in GTBL play, and will hand the ball to Zach Lampreia on Wednesday night when the Leafs visit the friendly confines of Bishops Cross Park.


Reds shutout Red Sox

The Thornhill Reds improved to 9-4 in GTBL play with a 7-0 road win in Pickering on Saturday night.

Dan Lehmkuhl(4-0) worked six innings, striking out seven for the win, moving him into the GTBL lead in victories. Mitch Sutton and Peter Joseph combined to keep the zero intact the rest of the way, and the Reds bats came alive in the eighth inning to claim the contest.

Rookie Gianfranco Morello continues to heat up at the right time, leading the Reds offense with a three hit and three run night. The Reds play twice this week ahead of the Hap Walters tournament, a home and home series with the Leaside Leafs.

Mack Major(0-2) will take the ball Monday night at Talbot Park looking to notch his first GTBL victory.
