The Langley Blaze find themselves in unfamiliar territory as they are now looking up at another team in the B.C. Premier Baseball League standings.

The Blaze lost 5-2 to the North Shore Twins on Saturday afternoon in a battle of the league’s top two U18 squads.

Against the Twins, Langley was done in by one inning as North Shore scored five times in the second inning.

Kyle Ross was tagged with the loss, surrendering all five runs. It was his first loss in six games as his record fell to 4-1. It was also the first time all season he allowed an earned run.

The Blaze turned things around on Sunday with back-to-back shutouts.

Ryan Braun and Tony Pharand combined on a five-hit shutout in a 3-0 win in game one.

Kyle McComb and Luke Horanski had an RBI apiece.

Game two saw Cooper Misic scatter three hits over six innings in a 10-0 victory.
