Two RBIs apiece from Justin Lawrence, Liam Wyatt and Andre Pelletier helped the Langley Blaze to a 14th straight win as they pounded the visiting North Delta Blue Jays 9-2.

The two U18 B.C. Premier Baseball League teams were playing at McLeod Park on Tuesday evening with Langley improving to a league-best 14-1 while the Blue Jays fell to a league-worst 1-8 record.

Wyatt finished with four hits — including a pair of doubles — and three runs scored.

On the mound, Jonathan Keltie went five innings, allowing two runs and striking out four.

Kristjan Storrie and Cooper Misic each tossed a perfect inning of relief with a strikeout apiece.

Up next for the Blaze is a weekend trip to Victoria.

The team plays a doubleheader against the Mariners (8-2) on May 10 and two more against the Eagles (6-4) on May 11.
