Junior Blaze allow one run, sweep Victoria to improve to 12-0

Some stellar pitching and defensive play helped the Langley Junior Blaze remain perfect.

The Blaze improved to 12-0 in the B.C. Junior U16 Premier Baseball League after blanking the Victoria Junior Mariners 6-0 and then 12-1 to complete the doubleheader sweep on Sunday at McLeod Park.

Langley has allowed just three runs total in their past four games.

Michael Stovman scattered four hits over six innings — while going 3-for-4 with two doubles at the plate — in the opener and Wesley Moore drove in a pair of runs. Rhys Cratty and Adam Reston had one RBI apiece.

And the second game of the doubleheader had Colby Ring allow three hits over five innings.

The game was tied at 1 for much of the game but the Blaze exploded for 11 runs i the fifth.

Broden Bydeweg led the onslaught with two hits and three RBIs while Mackenzie Berry drove in a pair of runs.

Quintin Nakamura, Trevor Alcos, Cratty, Stovman and Reston had one RBI each.

The Blaze take a bit of a break from league play as they are off until May 30.
