Thornhill Reds Senior Baseball

A's upset Reds

The Thornhill Reds fell short in the Hap Walters tourney on Sunday morning, losing to the Oakville A's 4-3.

The Reds bats simply went quiet, and wasted a good effort on the mound by starter Dave McElroy. Steve Palladino(1-1) took the loss in relief, giving up the game winning run with two out in the seventh.

The Reds trailed 3-2 in the home half of the sixth, and Greg Fleming hit a two out solo home run to tie the game and give the Reds a shot to win, but it wasn't in the cards.

All in all the Reds went 4-1 on the weekend, and played some great baseball. Thornhill is right back in action tomorrow night when they travel to East York to take on the Bulldogs at 7:30pm.
