This Week in Baseball
After winning by a run in their season opener Guelph headed to Vaughan for a tournament.

In their opener on Friday Guelph defeated the Ottawa West Twins 18-0. This game only went 4 innings due to the 2 hour time limit. Jonathan Murray needed only 47 pitches to throw the complete game shutout while on offence he had a hit. The big blow came off the bat of Garrett Hendriks who hit a 330 foot towering grand slam to right field as the Royals put up 7 runs in the first. Noah MacKillop had 2 hits and 3 RBI's and scored on a passed ball, Cody Graham had 2 hits and a RBI and scored on a passed ball, Jake Malyk had a hit and 2 RBI's, Lennon Richards had a hit and a RBI groundout, Mitch Van Braeckel had a run batted in and scored on an error. Both Blaise Shaw and Nicholas Bombino had a double each.

Next on Saturday afternoon (all games were delayed due to rain) Guelph was defeated by the Markham Mariners 6-1. Van Braeckel, Noah Campagnolo and Shaw saw time on the hill. On offense Campagnolo walked with the bases loaded for the Royals only run. Graham had 2 hits while Shaw, MacKillop and Adam Perry had a hit each.
Later on Saturday evening in cold temperatures Guelph and the Ajax Spartans finished in a 8-8 tie in 5 innings (time limitations) Graham started and was relieved by Adam Perry. On offense Campagnolo had 2 RBI's on a bases loaded walk and a groundout. Murray had 3 hits and a run batted in, Richards had a hit and a RBI, Malyk crushed a triple and had a RBI, Brett Burrows had a bases loaded walk bringing home a run and both MacKillop and Perry had RBI groundouts. Van Braeckel had a hit as well. Guelph made it to Sunday as 6 teams were left.

On Sunday though the rest of the tournament was cancelled due to extreme cold temperatures and snow. Organizers for the event said they would look to finish the tournament at a later date when all six teams could be available at the same time.

Then back to Inter County play saw their game with the Statford Indians suspended in the bottom of the 2nd inning due to rain. No make up date has been announced yet.
Then the next night they took the trip down Highway 24 into Wayne Gretzky's birthplace of Brantford and won in 13 innings beating the Red Sox 5-4. Murray, Hendriks, Bombino and MacKillop all pitched in this 4 hour marathon. Offensively Burrows had 2 hits and scored 2 runs, Perry had 3 hits and scored a run, Liam Devine and Van Braeckel had a hit and scored a run each, Murray and Graham had a double each while Campagnolo, Malyk, Richards, Shaw and Hendriks had a hit each.
