Championship weekend recap

It was a special weekend for the Thornhill Reds and manager Nolan Revin. After missing the league championship tournament in 2015, the rebuilt Thornhill Reds finished off a very good 2016, claiming their third GTBL championship in four years with a 5-2 win against Pickering. The Reds turned in a solid league effort all year, finishing third in the competitive AAA loop, with a 16-8 record. Playing good baseball early on, the Reds won five games in the Vaughan Tournament and brought home a championship at the early stages of the year. The Reds now move on to face the COBA Major champion Erindale Cardinals, in the first edition of the COBA/GTBL championship series. Thornhill will play a two out of three series on September 10 and 11 at Centennial Park to determine who earns league bragging rights.

Here is the recap of the Reds weekend en route to the GTBL crown.

Reds win GTBL championship

Reds win! Reds Win!

The Thornhill Reds won the GTBL championship in Pickering on Wednesday night. Stay tuned for a full breakdown of the weekend and road to the championship!

   

Reds play for GTBL crown Wednesday night

The Thornhill Reds showed up Sunday morning in Pickering and certainly exacted some revenge on the Pickering Red Sox, after the Red Sox held the Reds offense to a 2-1 loss on Saturday, the Reds exploded with the sticks and pounded Pickering 17-6 in the now termed semi final. Everybody got into the act, but a couple big hits and a blast from Reds leader Sean Sutton paved the way to the convincing win. Joe Presutti(3-2) battled through five innings to earn the win, on a hot day at Kirkey Park.

In the final, the Reds led 1-0, heading to the bottom of the second, when heat stroke claimed one of the umpires from the field. No replacement was able to be reached, so the game was suspended, and will be picked up on Wednesday night, either in Pickering, or at Bishops Cross Park.

 

Reds headed to the final on Sunday

The Thornhill Reds have put themselves in place to win the GTBL championship on Sunday at Kirkey Park, after going 2-1 over the first two days of the final four tournament to advance to the final. The Reds will have to beat the surging Pickering Red Sox two straight on Sunday, as the streaking eastern team has been playing some good baseball.

Friday night Chadwick Cameron(9-2) dug deep and held off the East York Bulldogs for a 6-5 Reds win. On Saturday afternoon, the Reds wasted a great outing from Mitch Sutton who evened his record at (2-2) after Thornhill never got the offense going in a 2-1 loss to the aforementioned Red Sox. Later Saturday afternoon, in the do or die game against the East York Bulldogs for the second time in three games, the Reds came out swinging, and cruised to a five inning 15-5 mercy win. Russell McGibbon(1-0) worked all five frames for the win.

The Reds will send Joe Presutti to the mound on Sunday morning for game one, with hopes of back to back wins against the Pickering Red Sox.
