Tampa Bay used the long ball, and the very small ball, to whip the Toronto Blue Jays 9-1. The Rays had three straight bunt singles and a 3-run homer running up an 8-1 lead after only three innings.
Wednesday night will go down as one of the most bizarre nights in the long history of Intercounty Baseball League. The Toronto Maple Leafs came back from 11 runs down to force extra innings before the lights went out in the park at 10 minutes past midnight, resulting in their game with the Burlington Twins being suspended with the score tied at 19 in the top of the 12th inning. The teams will complete the suspended game in Burlington tonight and if necessary, will play the sixth game of the series immediately after. Toronto leads the opening round series 3 games to 1.
A big day for the Owen Sound Attack was climaxed by the introduction of new Head Coach Greg Ireland in front of a large gathering at the Harry Lumley-Bayshore. The hiring of Ireland coincided with the official unveiling of the new logo and new look uniforms.
The hiring also comes at a time when Attack defender Matt Petgrave is at the National Junior Evaluation Camp in Edmonton, and both Jarrod Maidens and Gemel Smith were selected for Canada's Under 18 Hockey Team which will compete in Slovakia and the Czech Republic next week.
The C-F-L's only winless team is looking to add some spark to its offence. The B-C Lions acquired veteran receiver Arland Bruce from Hamilton for a 3rd-round pick in the 2012 draft. Bruce won't be in the lineup when B-C hosts Saskatchewan tomorrow. Tonight in the C-F-L, Toronto is home to Montreal.
Bubba Smith -- the first player selected in the 1967 N-F-L draft who later found a second career as an actor in the "Police Academy'' movies -- has died. Smith was one of the most feared defensive ends in the game, and played 9 seasons in the N-F-L. Five seasons with the Baltimore Colts, and two each with Oakland and the Houston Oilers. Bubba Smith was 66.
