The Red Sox travelled to Stan Wadlow Park for a Victoria Day double header against East York and came out on the losing end of both games, dropping the contests 6-3 and 1-0.

Pat Vecchiarelli got the start for the Red Sox in the first game, scheduled to work two innings in his 2018 debut.  He left the game down 2-0, and unfortunately - the Red Sox were never able to get the bats going in this one, while East York tacked on to their lead against reliever Brad Binns, highlighted by two home runs in the bottom of the 5th inning.

Pickering managed to put up two runs in the top of the 7th, highlighted by a two-run double from IF Sean Molony, who made his first start of the year for Pickering after missing the first three games.

Pat Veccharelli took the loss in this one, while Jake Gallo picked up the win for East York, going the distance.  Drew Roberts and Justin Newbold both hit HR's for the Bulldogs.

For the second game, the Red Sox turned to RHP Peter Nash to take the ball in this one - and he went up against East York's Jeff Gibbs.  The Bulldogs struck early, scraping a run across in the first inning - and it was enough to hold up in this one, as East York won the second game 1-0.  Both pitchers were excellent in this one, with only 4 hits combined in the game.  Gibbs had a no-hitter going into the top of the 7th inning, which was broken up by 1B Jesse Dynes, who hit a double to RF just out of the outfielder's reach.

Pickering dropped to 2-3 after Monday's contests, and next up is a home game against the Leaside Leafs on Wednesday night at Don Beer Memorial Park.  First pitch is set for 7:30pm.
