Blaze sweep Royals

Langley U18 baseball team improves to 24-12 after taking two from Parksville

After a close call which required extra innings in game one, the Langley Blaze made sure game two was no contest, sweeping a doubleheader against the last-place Parksville Royals.

Langley improved to 24-12, which is good for third spot in the B.C. Premier Baseball League.

Brendan Coulter tossed a gem, allowing just one hit over four innings in an 11-0 Blaze win on Sunday afternoon at McLeod Park.

The offence was taken care of Brendan Halstrom, as he had three RBIs while Tony Pharand and Dayton Wilson drove in a pair apiece.

The first game saw Langley fall behind 3-1 in the fourth inning before the Blaze rallied to lead 4-3 heading into the final inning. But after the Royals forced extra innings, Langley won it in the bottom of the eighth when Broden Bydeweg scored on a Parksville error.

Yi-An Pan picked up the win with 2.1 innings of relief pitching. He struck out three of the nine batters he faced.

Wilson had a pair of RBIs.

The Blaze are in Victoria on Sunday (July 5) for a doubleheader against the Mariners.
