Blaze rally falls short

Langley Premier baseball team loses 3-1 to North Shore Twins

The Langley Blaze brought the tying run up to the plate but their seventh-inning rally fell short.

The Blaze lost 3-1 to the visiting North Shore Twins on Monday at McLeod Athletic Park in BC Premier Baseball League action. The loss dropped Langley to 4-3 on the season.

Down 3-0 heading into their final inning, the Blaze began their rally attempt with two outs as half of their base hits (two) came in that final half-inning.

Gus Wilson’s double drove home Ryan Beitel from first base but that would be it for the offence.

North Shore scored one run in the second and then tacked on two more runs in the fifth.

Colby Ring was tagged with loss, allowing three earned runs on four hits over six innings. He struck out three while also walking three.

Langley is back in action on April 27 when they travel to South Surrey Athletic Park to face the White Rock Tritons.

They are also scheduled to host the North Delta Blue Jays in a doubleheader on April 30 at McLeod Athletic Park.
