Needing a run to stay in the game, Team Green got the help it needed after Homer Bush Jr. scored on a wild pitch in the top seventh inning to salavage a 2-2 tie with Team Orange Thursday night on Day 3 of the Blue Jays’ Tournament 12 event.
Team Green opened the scoring in the third inning after a scary play invovling Team Orange pitcher Gabriel Archambault. Outfielder Russell Young gave Team Grean a 1-0 lead after Archambault was hit in the back of his head from a throwing error by catcher Nicholas Thibodeau.
Archambault, who complained of dizziness after the game, was replaced by Cameron Byberg. Prior to his injury, Archambault was pitching a terrific game, striking out five batters in two innings while allowing an unearned run.
Team Orange responded in the bottom of the third as second baseman Aaron Marsh scored on a wild pitch. Thibodeau’s RBI in the sixth inning gave Team Orange a 2-1 lead, before Team Green got the tying run in the seventh.
Byberg pitched for three innings, giving up two hits and a pair of walks.
Team Green starter Louis-Philippe Langevin pitcher three strong innings, allowing one earned run and striking out three batters.
