ST. THOMAS - The St. Thomas Cardinals went in to the London District Baseball Association 15U playoffs as the front runners and the red birds didn't disappoint.

Following a 17-3-1 regular season, the Cardinals flew through the playoffs, winning all three games, at Emslie Field over the weekend.

Wyatt Atchison dominated on the mound, pitching a complete game five inning shutout, striking out six batters, silencing North London, 13-0, in the final Sunday morning.

Gavin Roose, Aiden Ward, Finn Towers, and Luke Ordronneau produced key hits, as the Cardinals had a 13 hit effort in total.

North London loaded the bases twice , but the Cardinals defence made clutch plays to preserve the shutout.

St. Thomas opened the playoffs downing the London AAA 14U Badgers, 7-5, in what would be their toughest game.

Pitcher Nathan Watson worked six and two-thirds innings for the win.

The Cardinals took the lead in the bottom of the second inning, on a Aiden Ward double.

Ward had a pair of hits and Cooper Henderson went three-for-three, in a 7-3 win against the West London Tincaps.

Pitchers Callum Ryckman and Aiden Ward combined to strike out nine batters over the seven innings.

Up next for the Cardinals is the Ontario Baseball Association U15 championship, Labour Day weekend in Tillsonburg
