Toronto Maple Leafs pitcher Brett van Pelt threw a complete game, nine-hitter against Brantford for the win in game two of the Intercounty Baseball League playoffs on Sunday.
Van Pelt, below, threw only four strikeouts but also gave the visiting Red Sox only three free passes to first in the 7-2 victory at Dominico Field.
The win puts Toronto ahead two games to none after keeping Brantford to only two runs in the first game of the series with a 12-2 win.
Brantford starting pitcher Nathan Forer, below, went four innings and gave up five runs before handing the ball over to relief.
Riley Barr, below, picked up two and two-thirds scoreless innings on the mound to keep the Maple Leafs off the scoreboard to end the game.
Brantford’s lone offensive power came from the bat of shortstop Brandon Dailey as he gets high-fives from teammates following his two-run homer in the top of the third inning to put his Red Sox temporarily into the lead.
Second baseman Dan Marra had two hits, an RBI and scored once while he watches this grounder pass him into right field, below.
