Cain Plante, Loiselle and Socransky combine for the shutout
by Randy Pascal

A successful weekend for the Sudbury Baseball Academy 16U Voyageurs at an Elite Showdown in Brampton could be attributed, in equal parts, to the thrill of racking up their first win of the year, with the sense of accomplishment that comes with being competitive in each and every game at the event.

The locals jumped out to a 3-0 first inning lead over the Toronto Cardinals in their opener, highlighted by a two-run triple from Caleb Cain Plante that plated both Gavin Roy and Braden Dubé. Voyageurs' starter Justin Vaillancourt pitched into the game's latter stages, the teams deadlocked at 3-3 for some time, before Toronto pulled away with a 7-4 win.

Forgive the Sudbury lads for cringing when they realized game two was opposite the Etobicoke Rangers, the same adversary that spanked them 15-0 just two weeks ago. With Dubé on the mound providing the Voyageurs with their best start to date, coach Brodie Jeffery and company held a 3-2 lead heading into the fifth inning.

An untimely Sudbury error would open the floodgates for the Rangers, though Jeffery was thrilled with the rebound effort. That contest paved the way to the first Sudbury victory of 2018, blanking the Ottawa Knights 4-0 in the weekend finale.

Caleb Cain Plante, Yanick Loiselle and Liam Socransky combined for the shutout on the mound, as the Voyageurs scored twice in the first inning and added another pair later in the game, as insurance.

A double by Anthony Signorile ignited the offense, in the mind of Jeffery. "We had a chance to win all three, I'm excited to see the boys continue to slowly climb," he said. "The morale of the team has been outstanding, the boys have really bought into the systems - they are becoming quite the baseball team."
