Langley offence erupts as baseball team wins three of four games

The Langley Blaze offence was in fine form for much of the weekend as the U18 baseball team won three of four games.

The Blaze quieted the Vancouver Cannons 10-0 and 8-1 on Saturday at Queen’s Park, before splitting a Sunday doubleheader with the White Rock Tritons. The Blaze took the opener 8-1 before losing 3-2 in game two.

Langley improved to 7-4 with the results.

Blaze 10 Cannons 3

Josh Wray drove in four runs while Bill Germaine had another three RBIs. That was more than enough offence for pitcher Jon Bauer, who scattered three hits and one walk over seven innings. He also struck out seven.

Bauer is 4-0 on the season and has yet to allow an earned run.

Blaze 8 Cannons 1

Germaine drove in another two runs, while Rutckjy connected with his second home run of the season, a two-run shot.

Marc Andre Habeck allowed just one run on three hits over six innings.

Blaze 8 Tritons 1

Four runs in the sixth and another three in the seventh helped turn a 1-0 game into an 8-1 rout.

Justin Geerts went six and two-thirds innings, allowing one run on six hits.

Aaron Hornanski and Matt Cratty both belted RBI doubles. Germaine and Greg Rogers also had RBIs.

Tritons 3 Blaze 2

White Rock broke a 2-2 tie with a run in the third as they stopped Langley’s winning streak at three games.

Cratty had the lone RBI.
