The Burlington Bandits didn’t make it out of the quarter finals – but that doesn’t mean Burlingtonians don’t have an interest in the semi-finals games of the Intercounty Baseball League.

Leafs rebound IBLThe Toronto Maple Leafs baseball team forced a game 7 after 18-6 win over the Barrie Baycats.  Trailing 3-2 going into the bottom of the fourth, the Leafs scored nine runs in their half inning to blow the game open and eventually tie the best-of-seven series at three games apiece.

Toronto had six home runs in the 23-hit offensive onslaught. First baseman Jon Waltenbury and centre-fielder Tyler Mitchell each went deep twice. Waltenbury finished with six RBI and scored three runs, and Mitchell, who added a double and two singles, had four RBI and four runs.
