London Community News
Team Ontario captured the under-17 Baseball Canada Cup gold medal after taking down British Columbia in the tournament final at Labatt Memorial Park on Sunday (Aug. 12).
Team Ontario went a perfect eight-for-eight in the five-day tournament wrapping up the national competition against a B.C. club they had already beaten twice.
B.C. opened the scoring in the gold medal matchup with two runs in the second inning, before the host province finally broke the game wide open in the fourth and fifth frames with back-to-back four run innings.
The B.C. team scored at least one run every inning between the second and sixth frames, but the west coast club wasn’t able to get a single point in the seventh and final inning to lose 9-8.
Ontario third baseman Malik Collymore, from Toronto’s Ontario Blue Jays, batted in five runs going 3-for-4 at the plate with the only triple in the game.
London Badgers’ right-hander Andrew Warner collects a gold with Ontario, relieving on the mound in three games to work for four innings and striking out seven batters.
Quebec took down Manitoba 7-2 in the bronze medal game.
