July 20 Update- to say nothing else the last two games, although losses, have been exciting. This marathon game went into the 10th inning before Cape Breton pulled out a 10-9 victory. Ancaster is still in the playoffs and has a crucial game against Quebec Champion Diamond Baseball Academy, both teams are 1-2, and a win for either would put them in the driver seat.
