After squandering a four-run lead in the top of the seventh, the Langley Junior Blaze recovered to plate one run in their half of the inning to knock off the North Delta Junior Blue Jays 5-4.
The two U16 baseball teams played on Tuesday at McLeod Park with the win improving Langley to a league-leading 24-4 in the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League.
It was the Blaze’s fourth straight win as they also went 3-1 over the weekend.
In Tuesday’s game, Shayne Clarke drove in two runs with Ryan Lipscombe and Tony Pharand hitting one RBI apiece.
Pharand had a great game at the plate, going 4-for-4.
Langley is back in action on June 19 when they visit Abbotsford’s Delair Park to battle the Junior Cardinals.
