June 9: Detroit 1, Toledo 0. Sam Goerts (8-3) throws seven shutout inning. This is the fourth straight start in which he hasn’t allowed a run. It’s been 33 2/3 innings since he last allowed a run—an unearned run—and 46 2/3 innings since he last allowed an earned run.
It took 15 years for the Toronto Maples to reach the Great Lakes Baseball League Championship Series. Their last and only first place finish was in 2019, and then they were brushed aside by the Windsor Vigilantes. That Toronto team won 80 games and lost 60. In 2021 and 2022, the Maples reached 81 wins and narrowly missed first place in the Canadian League. But each time the club failed to advance to the finals.
