Baseball Canada Championships: Walk-offs, night games, and more highlight Day 2

August 18, 2017


Two days are now complete, with the standings beginning to take shape in the round robin stages of the four Baseball Canada championship tournaments underway.

Action began early once again, with a few Thursday games being made up thanks to inclement weather. Take a look at results, standings, and more below.

18U Championship

Quebec and the host London Badgers are emerging as early favourites in London, Ont. at the 18U tournament. Both teams are 3-0 through Day 2, with two wins coming today.

London began the tournament with a win over Saskatchewan Thursday, and handed Prince Edward Island their first loss of the tournament with a victory Friday morning. They then beat Nova Scotia 3-0. Brendan Johnston and Morgan Palmer combined on the mound for the shutout victory.

It has been a team effort for London, who does not have a player with more than one RBI in either of their Friday wins.
