Creemore 11U Selects split double header with Milton
In their final two games before the provincial championship tournament, the Creemore 11U Selects split their doubleheader with the Milton Mets last Sunday.
Game 1 saw the Mets victorious by a score of 11-7.
The Creemore team was unable to stop the Mets who scored in all but one inning and whose balanced offense saw hits from ten different players.
Creemore failed to capitalize by stranding a total of ten base runners over each of the game’s five innings.
In Game 2, Creemore was triumphant in a well-played 10-8 game.
Milton led off the game with a double, but some alert defence and a strong throw from centerfielder Keenan Reynolds caught the Milton baserunner in a run down.
This first out kept Milton off the scoreboard in the first inning and preserved the 1-0 lead. Evan Wells had two hits in the game including his team-leading sixth double of the season that cleared the bases with two out in the third inning.
Reece Fuller and Thomas Weldon also had multiple hit games
This weekend the team will compete in the Baseball Ontario August Madness Championship tournament in Sudbury. On Friday night the team will play West Mountain (Hamilton) and then face Komoka and Milton on Saturday. Semi-finals and the championship game will be Sunday.
