Russell Young’s bases-loaded RBI single scored the winning run as the Langley Junior Blaze doubled up the Abbotsford Junior Cardinals.

Young finished the night with two hits and three RBIs.

The Blaze improved to 8-5 with the victory.

The teams were tied at two heading into the bottom of the sixth inning when Langley loaded the bases and scored a pair of runs.

Ryan Blight pitched a one-two-three seventh to wrap up the win. Blight pitched four innings, striking out three for the win. He allowed two runs, but just one was earned. Joshua Mirecki pitched the first three innings, allowing just two hits.
