Blaze offence cools down from one game to the next

Nine runs in victory but just one run in defeat for Langley senior men's baseball team

One game after striking for nine runs, the Langley Senior Blaze offence cooled off, being held to a single run in a 2-1 loss on Monday night.

The senior men’s baseball team was coming off a come-from-behind 9-8 victory on June 16, scoring five runs in the fifth and another three in the sixth inning to erase a 7-1 deficit against Burnaby Collegiate at McLeod Park.

Jordan Varga had a two-run home run and three RBIs for Langley while Keenan Chahin drove in another pair.

Scott Webster, Jesse Peters and Jon Mihic each plated one run.

Dylan Rehmke picked up the win, allowing one run over five innings.

But back in action at McLeod Park on Monday night (June 20), the Langley bats were limited to two hits against the Coquitlam Angels.

The lone Langley run came when Chanin scored on an error.

Jordan Broatch was tagged with the loss, allowing a pair of earned runs on four hits over three innings. The Blaze bullpen of Brandon Marklun, Kristjan Storrie and Robbie Watson did a great job over the final four innings, allowing just two base runners — both on walks.

The Blaze have a busy week with four games in the next five days. They play Burnaby Collegiate at Robert Burnaby Park on June 22 and then host the Burnaby Bulldogs at McLeod Park on June 24 (7 p.m.). They finish the week with a doubleheader at McLeod Park on June 25 against the Everett Merchants. Game times are 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
