The Brantford Braves came out on the wrong end of two extra-innings affairs to drop out of the Ontario Baseball Association under-21 provincial championships on the weekend.
The double-elimination tournament took place in Burlington and featured the top 20 junior baseball teams in Ontario battling for one of two spots at the national championships.
The Braves started off the tournament on Friday against the Tecumseh Thunder. In a see-saw battle, the Braves fell 6-5 in the 10th inning.
Casey Bouillere-Howard put the Braves on the board with a solo home run to make it 3-1 for the Thunder. In the seventh inning, the Braves took a 4-3 lead when Taylor Pappin hit a three-run home run.
The Thunder tied it 4-4, but Braves first baseman Nick Burdett added a solo home run to make it 5-4.
The Thunder tied the game in the ninth inning, then won it in the 10th.
The Braves had an easier time with Oshawa, earning a 13-3 victory.
Dylan Grosul got the win on the mound, while Burdett had a three-run home run and a two-run home run.
The Braves continued their winning ways on Saturday morning with a 1-0 victory against Oakville. Marcus Beal had the lone RBI in the seventh inning, while Aaron Bain was the winning pitcher.
The Braves season came to an end on Saturday night in a game that decided the final team for the five-team championship round on Sunday.
Brandon Stagg and Matt Hill pitched a great game for the Braves, but Brantford fell 3-2 to East York in the 10th inning.
