OTTAWA – Day two provided more high scoring finishes, including close games at all tiers of the Baseball Canada national championships.
Read about the notable games here.
13U National Championship
In one of the most thrilling games of the week thus far, Prince Edward Island were able to walk off Quebec in the bottom of the seventh. With the score tied 10-10, runners were able to advance on a passed ball before Owen Lynch singled home Cody McCormack for a 11-10 win with an RBI single.
That gave P.E.I. their second win of the tournament, tying Quebec and Saskatchewan for first in their division. There’s a logjam on that side of the standings, but North York still has a stranglehold on Pool A with their perfect 3-0 record.
