In senior men’s baseball action the Aldergrove Giants stopped their five game losing streak in a big way on Sunday, May 27.

The Giants’ bats woke up and pounded out 17 hits against strong North Langley Expo pitching. Giants’ starting pitcher Jacob Harder picked up his first win of the season, throwing a strong five innings, allowing four hits and striking out seven.

Jacob also hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning.

Relief pitcher Robin Fuller was back in the lineup after a three game absence and pitched four innings of shutout ball. At one time Robin struck out six in a row and eight of nine to close out a Giant 12-0 victory. Robin also wrapped a couple of singles up the middle to help out the offence.

Many Giants came out of slumps but hot-hitting Steve Borth continued to lead the team offensively, going three for four, with three runs scored. Domingo Guarenas had two hits, including a two out rbi single in the first inning that got the Giants going.

Trevor Kuby is starting to come around and he went two for three with a double and two runs scored.

Tyler Jones chipped in with two more hits and is probably the Giants’ most consistent hitter so far this season. Greg Moffatt was behind the plate for both pitchers and was strong defensively and called a good game. Greg also had a base hit and scored two runs.

Mark Filiatrault had a base hit and run scored.

Giants have had several injuries this year and welcomed back Graham Dunne, leading the Giants defence. Graham plays the dreaded right field; as the sun sets you can hardly see the ball. Trevor Cieszecki played well at short and had a base hit.

The Britco Pork Inc and Fox and Hounds Giants have been playing well the last few games and need to add a few more wins in upcoming games to get back in the race in the very competitive Bill Mather’s division in the over eighteen division of the Lower Mainland Baseball Association.
