Maple Leafs tie the series up
In a return to Toronto for the 4th time this season and 1st in the playoffs, it was an important game for both teams. The Maple Leafs were able to get a game 2 victory with a 9-6 win.
Byron Reichstein started things off for the Majors with a 2-run home run in the second inning before Jakob Newton added on to the Majors’ runs with a triple in the third, scoring Keith Kandel. Cleveland Brownlee continued hitting well in these two games as he had a 2-run double in the 5th. Unfortunately, the Majors’ were silenced until the top of the 9th when Gibson Krzeminski came off the bench to bring the Majors within 3 but would leave the bases loaded.
Pedro De Los Santos would only able to go 4 innings allowing 6 runs while striking out 4 and walking 5. Daniel Gore came into the game and was productive out of the bullpen going 4 innings allowing 2 earned runs while striking out 4 and walking 1.
The series shifts to London for game 3 at Labatt Park on Friday night. Tickets for Friday night can be purchased online at londonmajors.com.
