The Dundas Little League Major teams have been working hard as another season of baseball winds down.
In the first playoff game the Mountain Pure Springs Blue Jays took on Margaret’s Legacy Rockies. Mike Dittrich of the Blue Jays got the game going in the second inning with a big hit to center-field for a double. The Rockies then got a double off the bat of Carter Macdonald. It was a battle of the bats as Daniel Hassel of the Jays hit a grounder out to left field and got a home run. The great hits continued for the Jays as Spencer Schmalz got a great hit to center field for a triple but then got tagged out at the plate. Then Kevin Rorie slammed the ball to the fence, only to be caught out by the Rockies.
Late night games continued in the play-offs with the Collins Brewhouse Giants taking on the Boston Pizza Red Sox and then the Mountain Pure Springs Blue Jays. In the first inning, the Giants took the lead with three runs. In the second, call-up Robbie Zaitchik hit a ball to second and got an RBI. Great pitching for the Giants by Zaitchik and James Gowland secured the lead. In the top of the fourth, Gowland slammed a hit into center field to score two runs.
The fourth and final playoff game was between Margaret’s Legacy Rockies and the Boston Pizza Red Sox. Oliver Robinson got the Rockies on the scoreboard with a hit into left field. The Red Sox tied it 1-1 in the first. At the top of the second Michaela Walker had a double and Jacob Miller hit the ball to right field for a double. Nate Guder stole home for the Red Sox and Kit Corsini slammed the ball into left field and then stole second base to keep the game close.

In the top of sixth inning, Michaela Walker and Matthew Ferries both hit well. The Red Sox fought back and it was a very close game with the Rockies.
