Justin Gideon singled twice and drove in a run and scored once, Carlos Villoria had two hits, an RBI and run, and Nolan Pettipiece added a double, RBI and run. Kevin Hussey had two hits and scored twice, and Robert Tavone singled and doubled.

Jack Dennis (2-4) picked up the win, allowing three runs on two hits over seven innings, striking out 10 and walking six.

The sixth-place Bandits improved to 8-20.

Justin Marra had two hits for the Leafs, including his 11th home run of the season. Marra drove in two.

Ryan White added a single and RBI and scored once.

Brett van Pelt (1-5) took the loss, giving up five runs on nine hits over six innings, walking two and striking out eight.

Fifth-place Toronto fell to 15-16.
