Junior Blaze bats silent in 12-0 loss

Langley junior baseball team sports 13-8 record through season’s first 21 games

One week after handing the league-leading White Rock Junior Tritons a 5-4 loss, the Langley Junior Blaze could not duplicate the feat.

The Blaze bats went silent as they managed a meagre two hits in a 12-0 loss on Wednesday (May 31) at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Langley also split a doubleheader on Sunday, winning 11-5 and losing 10-4 to the North Delta Junior Blue Jays at Mackie Park, leaving the Blaze with a 13-8 record in the BC Junior Premier Baseball League.

Against White Rock, the Blaze surrended runs in each of the first four innings of the game, which was shortened to five innings. The Langley offence managed just four base runners with two hits and two walks.

In Sunday’s action, game one saw the Blaze score three times in both the first and second innings to build an insurmountable 6-0 lead. They tacked on two more runs in the fourth and another three in the sixth.

Tommy Kreitz paced the offence with a bases-clearing triple while Brandon Nicoll brought home a pair of runs.

Samson Back, Alex Wright, Nico Bleha and Soloman Michaud each had an RBI.

Ryan Blight earned the win, allowing five runs — just three of them earned — over four innings.

By the time Langley scored in the top of the sixth inning in game two, they were already trailing 9-0.

Kreitz delivered an RBI triple while Nicoll had an RBI double and Russell Young hit a sacrifice fly.

Joshua Mirecki was tagged with the loss, allowing seven runs over four innings.

Langley is back in action on Saturday in Nanaimo against the Mid Island Junior Pirates.
