Senior Blaze struggling to score runs

Langley baseball team off to 0-3 start after scoring just three runs

The Langley Senior Blaze are off to a tough start, dropping their first three games of the Pacific International League baseball season.

A big problem for the team, which consists of local university and college players home for the summer, is an inability to score runs.

The Blaze managed just three runs total as they dropped all three games they played against the Coquitlam Angels.

The first game was May 23 at McLeod Park and the Angels won with two runs in the top of the seventh inning to snap a 1-1 tie.

Bob Foerster’s RBI single scored Tyler Barlow for the lone Langley run.

The teams reconvened at Coquitlam’s Mundy Park for a doubleheader on Sunday.

The Blaze led game one 1-0 through the first five innings thanks to a Graig Merritt’s RBI double which scored Ryan Jensen.

But the Angels struck for three runs in the bottom of the sixth to take the win.

And in game two, Coquitlam led throughout, with Langley scoring one run in the top of the seventh when Jesse Peters drove home Brad Ferraro.

Ferraro finished 3-for-3 with a run scored.

The Blaze are in Kelowna for four games this weekend.
