One of more memorable Intercounty Baseball League playoff series in recent memory will come to a head on Sunday night at Labatt Park.
The Toronto Maple Leafs forced a game 7 in their IBL semi-final with the London Majors on Saturday night thanks to a 16-4 victory in game 6 at Christie Pits in Toronto.
Toronto managed to catch London sleeping in the second inning, putting up eight runs on seven hits. Majors pitcher Owen Boon was taken out of the game after 1.2 innings with a 7.27 ERA.
Christie Pits was the scene of an incident in game 4 where the Majors left the field for 65 minutes after a Toronto player allegedly used a racial slur against one of their players in the top of the fourth inning. The Maple Leafs ended up winning that game 8-2 to tie the series 2-2.
The Majors were later forced to pay a $1,000 fine for leaving the field and both managers were forced to sit out one game.
First pitch on Sunday has been set for 7:05 p.m.
The winner of the series will face defending champion Barrie in the final.
