Thornhill Reds Senior Baseball

Reds silence Hawks

Josh Appel(1-0) and Mack Major combined over seven innings of work, surrendering just one hit each, as the Thornhill Reds cruised to a 10-0 home win Wednesday night.

Appel worked the first five frames, striking out one earning his first win of 2017. Mack Major looked good in his second GTBL appearance, working the final two frames to preserve the shutout.

Kris Fielding continued a scorching start to the year with a three hit night, which included an RBI double and a run scored. The Reds strung together eight straight hits in the eight run third inning, and the defense did the rest of the work in picking up the win.

The Reds next action, weather permitting, is Thursday night at Talbot Park, where Dan Lehmkuhl takes the ball for the Reds at 7:30pm.


Reds .500 after week one

Sitting at 1-1 in GTBL play, the Reds ready for two more games on back to back nights this coming week.

Josh Appel will take the hill Wednesday night when Newmarket comes to town, and the Reds will look to rebound from an ugly home opener where they fell to the Martingrove Sox 12-2.

Thursday sees Thornhill travel south to face the Leaside Leafs at Talbot Park, their first meeting of the season.

The Reds get back both Gianfranco Morello and Zach Lampreia from school for the upcoming week, and will only be awaiting the arrival of slugger Harrison Greenough who will join the team late May/early June.


Reds win 2017 opener

The Thornhill Reds opened 2017 with a 5-2 road win against the Pickering Red Sox.

Dan Lehmkuhl(1-0) was the winner over two innings of relief work, facing the minimum. Russ McGibbon had three hits, leading the way for a Reds offense that broke open a 1-0 ball game in the seventh inning with a four spot.

The Reds open up at home this Wednesday when the improved Martingrove Sox visit Bishops Cross at 7:30pm. Mitch Sutton takes the ball for Thornhill in the home debut.


Appel to start opener

The Thornhill Reds will send Josh Appel to the hill tonight in their season opener, when they visit the Pickering Red Sox at Don Beer Park, at 7pm. The Reds are coming off a 2016 GTBL championship, and will look to defend their crown in the coming months.



Thornhill inks two more

Just before the start of the 2017 season the Thornhill Reds announced two more signings for the summer.

Warren Kember, a Thornhill native will add some depth at the infield corner spots, after attending Emory College in Georgia. The right handed stick has some pop in his bat, and although he spent a year away from the game, will provide some much needed platoon options for the Reds.

Mack Major was a second team all star for the Lethbridge Bulls in the talent heavy WMBL, in Saskatchewan/Alberta in 2016, and the talented righty has chosen to pitch out of Bishops Cross for 2017.

The Reds open up Saturday in Pickering, at 7pm. Josh Appel will take the ball to start for Thornhill.
