Junior Blaze take three of four in Kelowna

Langley U16 baseball improves to 17-2 in B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League

The Langley Junior Blaze won three of four weekend games in Kelowna, improving their overall record to an impressive 17-2.

The U16 baseball team was at Kelowna’s Edith Gay Field against the Okanagan Junior Athletics, winning 5-1 and 7-2 on Saturday before losing 4-3 and winning 14-9 on Sunday.

Blaze 5 Athletics 1

Langley scored three runs in the top of the first inning and never looked back, prevailing 5-1.

Nick Laflamme and Dayton Wilson drove in one run apiece and that was more than enough for pitcher Nick Evans, who allowed one unearned run over six innings.

Blaze 7 Athletics 2

The Blaze took advantage of some sloppy Okanagan defence, as they scored five unearned runs off six Athletics errors.

Kevin Sengara drove in three runs, hitting a home run, a double and a single.

Parker Logan picked up the win, striking out four over two innings.

Athletics 4 Blaze 3

The Athletics scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning off a home run and a bases loaded walk to rally for the 4-3 victory, ending Langley’s eight-game win streak.

Hollins and Sengara both hit home runs in the loss, while Laflamme was tagged with the loss.

Blaze 14 Athletics 9

Trailing 9-3, Langley struck for nine runs in the fifth inning on their way to the 14-9 win.

Shayne Clarke, Hollins and Sengara all drove in two runs apiece, while Dakota Currie, Ryan Lipscombe, Logan and Laflamme brought home one run each.

Thomas Sloan earned the win, pitching three and one third innings in relief, allowing one earned run and striking out four.

Langley is back in action on May 28 when they host the North Delta Junior Blue Jays at McLeod Park in a doubleheader. First game goes at 6 p.m.
