We were hoping to have completed our Tillsonburg slo-pitch season this past week but Mother Nature failed to cooperate. Hopefully this week’s weather will be on our side!
The executive had to make a tough decision to cancel last Thursday and did so without bias. Unfortunately you cannot please everyone and… all I can say is there is always room in our group for more if you would like to volunteer!
The final series between G.C. Lounsbury and Platinum Concrete commenced last Tuesday night under beautiful conditions.
Platinum put seven up to open the game, G.C. tied it by the fifth and led by one after six complete. Platinum started the seventh plating six. Adam Hunter hit a two-run homer in the rally and Scott Balazs had a two-run triple. G.C. fought back in their half highlighted by Stephen DeBlaire’s three-run homer but they came up one run short.
Platinum 19, G.C. 18
Platinum: Joe Thorburn 4-5, Kieran Taylor 4-4, Aaron Laporte HR, Adam Hunter HR
GC: Trevor Stuyt 3-3 HR, Cheyne Sarafinchin 3-4, Stephen DeBlaire HR, Kent Collings HR, Tim Townsend HR
It was all Team Awesome in the opener as they mercied Chaos in five. Awesome put up seven in two of their five at-bats and belted out a dozen extra base hits. Everyone in the order had at least two hits. Jon Nunn and Martin Klassen each hit two homers.
