The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The P.E.I. Youth Se­lects fin­ished with a tie and two losses at the Blue Jays T12 At­lantic iden­ti­fi­ca­tion tour­na­ment last week­end in Monc­ton.

Teams in­cluded all the At­lantic prov­inces se­lect teams as well as an At­lantic all-star team of 18-year-olds.

Walks and er­rors plagued P.E.I. in a 9-6 loss to the Nova Sco­tia Se­lects to open the tour­ney.

Hunter McQuaid, Porter Smith and Bran­don Con­don com­bined to sur­ren­der five hits to Nova Sco­tia, but gave up eight walks. Matt Bar­low and Pa­trick Gallant each had two hits, while Kyle Pinksen, Ryne MacIsaac and Bran­don Watts all chipped in a hit.

P.E.I. tied the New Brunswick Se­lects 1-1 as no ex­tra in­nings were played in the tour­na­ment.

Pinksen pitched four shutout in­nings, giv­ing up two hits and strik­ing out six.

Conor McGre­gor and Lo­gan MacDougall pitched the last three in­nings and sur­ren­dered the lone run on three hits. Pinksen, MacIsaac and Ri­ley Gallant had P.E.I.’s hits

Game 3 saw the At­lantic All-Stars score twice in the sixth in­ning for a 3-1 win.

Bar­low threw five dom­i­nant in­nings, al­low­ing two hits and strik­ing out five, McGre­gor was the hard-luck loser in re­lief.

P.E.I. bats churned out four hits, Pinksen with two and one each from MacIsaac and Watts.

Sun­day’s ac­tion was rained out.

The tour­na­ment, put on by the Toronto Blue Jays, helps se­lect the At­lantic team for the Tour­na­ment 12 at the Rogers Cen­tre in Toronto in Septem­ber.
