Thornhill Reds Senior Baseball

Reds bounce back with wild walk off win

The Thornhill Reds fell behind early, trailing 11-4 in the fifth inning against the East York Bulldogs, but the bullpen shut the door the rest of the way allowing the Reds to storm back and win it 12-11.

Russ McGibbon delivered the game winning single, plating two Reds in the three run ninth. Kravice Batts(1-0) worked a scoreless ninth to pick up the win, following Mitch Sutton's scoreless eighth and an impressive two inning performance from Eric Wakeman, all which gave the Reds a chance to win the ball game.

Thornhill is back at it Thursday, when they visit Talbot Park for the first time in 2018 for a date with the Leaside Leafs.

 

Reds fall in semi final

The Thornhill Reds picked a bad time for perhaps their worst ball game of the year, losing to East York 13-10 in the semi finals of the Fathers Day Classic in Vaughan. The Reds posted ten runs but made a number of physical and mental errors, and just couldn't outhit their mistakes in this one.

The Reds still showed well, going 3-1 on the weekend and at the near halfway point of the season sit at 10-3 overall.

Thornhill has two GTBL tilts lined up this week, Wednesday Zach Lampreia will take the hill at home against East York, and Thursday the Reds visit Talbot Park in Leaside.

 

Reds 3-0 and move to semis at Vaughan tourney

The Thornhill Reds won all three round robin games, finishing first in their pool and are moving on to the Semi finals of the 2018 Vaughan Fathers Day Classic tournament.

The Reds beat Oakville 7-4, Kendal 11-7, and Erindale 9-4 to receive a bye straight to Sunday, avoiding a Saturday night quarterfinal game. The Reds won the tournament in 2016, and 2017 saw no winner awarded due to weather. Adam Jafine will look to send the Reds to the final as he will take the ball in the morning semi.

   

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.
