The Langley Blaze made the most of their chances, turning four walks, four stolen bases and two errors into a pair of runs as they edged the Abbotsford Cardinals 2-1.

The Blaze victory — the U18 Premier Baseball League team’s sixth straight since losing to Abbotsford in the season opener on April 11 — came despite the fact Langley did not register a single hit.

Mitchell Robinson and Mason Verge scored the Langley runs.

Jordan Atkinson earned the win, allowing one run over six and one-third innings of work. He struck out six, walked four and allowed five hits.

The Cardinals had runners on the corners in the top of the seventh inning with one out, but Tony Pharand was able to nail down the final two outs for the save.

Langley is scheduled to play the White Rock Tritons (2-6) tonight (Thursday) at South Surrey Athletic Park. The Blaze also have a four-game set in Kelowna this weekend against the Okanagan Athletics (4-2).
