Mosquito bats erupt for 29 runs in Bolton
Creemore’s Peewee team was back in action on Wednesday night hosting Collingwood. The two-week layoff seemed to hurt them and they looked rusty falling behind 8-4. The tides turned in the bottom of the fourth inning when the Creemore bats came alive, cashing in 11 runs, leading to a 15-8 final. Landon Grant returned from injury to pick up the win and Creemore improved to a league best 8-1-3 record.
Next up is Collingwood #2 Wednesday July 11 in Creemore.
The Mosquito team had their doubleheader in Bolton last Sunday rained out, but they made the trip there to make up one of the games on Tuesday. Lukas Bennington went 4-4 with 7 RBIs and three separate players scored 4 runs in a 29-7 route. Creemore is sitting at 5-2 now during regular season play. Next up Sunday in Barrie for a doubleheader.
The Senior team has shown quite a bit of heart from their nucleus that continues to battle. They’ve gone 2-5 over the last seven games but posted a positive run differential in that span. The highlight over the last two weeks would be Elijah Gardinerʼs complete game win in Mansfield last Wednesday. Gardiner played the last few years in Mansfield before coming to the Braves last fall for OBAs. Jeff Akitt, Tom Gateman, Brandon Watson and Craig Bessant will be representing Creemore in the NDBL All-Star game Saturday, July 7. Next up, Creemore hosts Mansfield Sunday, July 8 at 1 p.m.
