A baker’s dozen for white-hot Langley baseball team

Junior Blaze stretch win streak to 13 games with extra innings victory

It took 11 innings, but the Langley Junior Blaze stretched their winning streak to a baker’s dozen.

Andre Pelletier got on board because of an error, he stole second base and then advanced to third on a wild pitch.

And Eric Broatch then promptly singled him home for the go-ahead run.

Steven Young then retired the side in the bottom of the inning for the 4-3 win over the host Abbotsford Junior Cardinals on July 4 at Delair Park.

Langley’s 13th straight win improved the U16 baseball team to a league-best 26-5. They lead the second-place North Shore Junior Twins by five games.

Justin Lawrence and Colin McMaster both delivered RBIs in the Blaze’s three-run third inning.

The Cardinals struck for one run in the first inning and then forced extras with two runs in the bottom of the seventh.

Langley is back in action on July 11 when they visit South Surrey Athletic Park to battle the White Rock Junior Tritons.
