Junior Blaze remain on fire

Langley runs win streak to 11, has just two losses in 30 games this season

Four more victories have pushed the Langley Junior Blaze winning streak to 11 games.

The U16 baseball club swept a pair of doubleheaders over the weekend at McLeod Park, beating the Nanaimo Junior Pirates 11-1 and 5-1 on Saturday and then winning twice more 5-4 and 8-1 on Sunday over the Victoria Junior Mariners.

The results improve Langley to a B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League-leading record of 28-2.

The first game against Nanaimo saw Jesse Unger drive in five runs, which was more than enough offence for pitcher Jake Polancic, who struck out four and allowed one run over five innings.

Game two was tied at one through the first five and a half innings, but in the bottom of the sixth, the Blaze scored four times in the 5-1 victory.

Cole Cantelon, Dominic Baptista, Quintin Nakamura and Yi-Fan Pan had an RBI apiece. Yi-An Pan went the distance on the mound, allowing three hits and striking out four.

Against Victoria the next day, Langley was trailing 4-3 and down to three outs.

After Broden Bydeweg tied the score on an error, Langley had the bases loaded with two outs. And Yi-An Pan singled to left-field, scoring Baptista for the winning run.

Unger, Nakamura and Jaron Jeske each had an RBI.

Aiden Mordecai picked up the win, striking out three and allowing just one hit and one walk over two innings.

Parker Logan struck out five in five innings of work.

And the weekend concluded with Langley erasing an early 1-0 deficit, thanks to a six-run second inning en route to an 8-1 win.

Yi-An Pan and Cantelon each drove in a pair of runs. Yi-Fan Pan threw a complete game with six strikeouts.

Langley is back in action on tomorrow (Wednesday) as they visit the Abbotsford Junior Cardinals at Delair Park.
