Langley takes both ends of doubleheader against North Delta

The Langley Blaze swept a doubleheader over the North Delta Blue Jays, snapping a brief two-game losing streak.

It was one of three runs Knight scored in the game while Berg finished with a pair of hits and two RBIs. Cole Cantelon and Marsall Luiz also drove in a run apiece.

Jacob Baker earned the win with seven solid innings, allowing one run on five hits.

Game two saw Mac Berry deliver a pair of RBIs with Dawson Grey, Daniel Martin, Berg and Luiz driving in one run apiece.

Matt Dalgleish picked up the victory with a complete game six-hitter.
