Junior Blaze still perfect

Langley U16 baseball team improves to 6-0 after defeating White Rock and Victoria

The Langley Junior Blaze are still perfect on the season after winning three more games to improve to 6-0.

The U16 B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League team doubled up the White Rock Junior Tritons 8-4 at McLeod Park on April 24 and then swept both ends of a doubleheader on Saturday in Victoria, defeating the Junior Eagles 7-5 and 4-0.

Blaze 8 Tritons 4

After White Rock rallied for three runs in the top of the fifth inning to tie the score at four, the Blaze responded with four runs — two of which were unearned — in the sixth to win 8-4.

Josh Geerts picked up the win, allowing four runs — none of which were earned — on three hits and one walk. He struck out five.

Danny Hollins, Devon Bird, Brendan Holstrom and Dakota Curry each drove in a run for Langley.

Blaze 7 Eagles 5

Langley put up five runs in the second inning en route to the 7-5 victory.

It was again a balanced attack as four players — Tony Pharand, Dayton Wilson, Nick Laflamme and Ryan Lipscomb —each drove in a run.

Nick Evans got the win, allowing four runs — none earned — over three innings. He struck out three.

Blaze 4 Eagles 0

After loading the bases in the bottom of the first inning on a single and a pair of walks, Parker Logan pitched his way out of the jam. And that would be the only hit he surrendered, finishing with a complete game shut-out in Langley’s 4-0 victory.

Logan finished with 10 strikeouts and five walks over the seven innings.

The offence took advantage of three Victoria errors to score two unearned runs.

Hollins and Kevin Sanghera had the Blaze RBIs.

Langley visits the Whalley Junior Chiefs on May 1 before returning to McLeod Park for a pair of doubleheaders on May 4 and 5 against the Nanaimo Junior Pirates and Fraser Valley Junior Chiefs, respectively.
