Blaze offence goes silent

Nine runs helped the Langley senior men's baseball team snap losing skid but team combines for just four hits in doubleheader defeat

After scoring nine runs and snapping a five-game losing streak, the Langley Senior Blaze offence was shut out in both games of a doubleheader.

Trailing by one run, the senior men’s baseball team scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to rally for the 9-6 victory on Thursday night over Burnaby Collegiate at McLeod Athletic Park.

After Michael Murphy scored on a wild pitch, Tyler Barlow delivered a two-run single to put Langley ahead for good. Barlow would then score on a Scott Webster single.

Webster finished the game with three RBIs.

Kristjan Storrie came on in relief in the top half of the seventh and after issuing a walk, retired the next three batters for the save.

Barry Caine earnd the win, with two innings of two-hit ball.

And after the Blaze’s doubleheader was rained out on Saturday, they took the field at Robert Burnaby Park against the Burnaby Bulldogs for a pair of games, falling by identical 2-0 scores.

The Blaze managed just two hits in each game and lost despite allowing only three hits in both games.

Langley is back in action with home games on June 14 against the Coquitlam Angels and June 16 versus Burnaby Collegiate. Both are at McLeod Park with first pitch at 7 p.m.
