Senior Blaze take three of four

Weekend highlights include two home runs from Scott Webster, six RBIs from Zach Mihic and 10-strikout performance from Shane Kraemer

The Langley Senior Blaze hit the road and managed three wins in four tries.

The senior men’s baseball team faced a pair of weekend doubleheaders in Pacific International League play and the results improved the team to 10-6, good for third spot in the league.

First up was a twin bill on Saturday at Everett Memorial Stadium against the Everett Merchants.

And the opener saw Steven Federau pitch a complete game gem, scattering seven hits over seven innings while allowing just one unearned run in a 3-1 victory.

The offence came courtesy of a trio of players — Aaron Horanski, Zach Mihic and Jon Mihic — who each contributed one RBI.

But game two was a different story as Everett used three big innings — scoring six, four and five runs, respectively — in a 15-6 win.

It wasted a big game offensively from Scott Webster who went 4-for-4 for Langley with four RBIs. Zach Mihic and Shane Kraemer had the other RBIs.

Cortez Chappell took the loss.

The next day saw the Blaze travel to Shorecrest for a doubleheader against the Northwest Honkers.

The first game was a 9-2 Blaze rout while the second require extra innings and ended with a 4-3 Langley victory on a ninth-inning home run from Scott Webster, his second of the day and 10th of the season.

Webster finished with a pair of RBIs and Zach Mihic had the other.

Corey Parsons was solid on the mound, allowing three runs over seven innings. But it was Cam Challand earning the win with two innings of one-hit shutout ball.

The earlier game saw Kraemer go the distance, striking out 10 along the way.

Offensively, Zach Mihic had three RBIs. He drove runs home in all four games and finished the weekend with six RBIs.

Horanski also had a pair of RBIs while Webster, Joe Germaine, Bob Foerster and Clayton Howell had one apiece.
