Baseball: All Stars shut out host team

The Trail All Stars continued their excellent play at the B.C. Little League Major championship in North Langley

The Trail All Stars continued their excellent play at the B.C. Little League Major championship in North Langley, shutting out the host team 10-0 on Monday.

A lead off, solo home run by Austin Cox in the bottom of the second inning was all Trail would need as they upped their record to 2-1 in their quest for the provincial championship.

The Trail All Stars plated four runs in the second inning highlighted by Cox’s homer and a bases loaded single by Jordan Sheets to score two and give the All Stars a 4-0 lead.

The team would score two more in the third with back-to-back singles from Cox and Reilly McKinnon setting up a sac fly from T. J. Murdoch, and a Mike Zarikoff single to make it 6-0.

Trail would close out the game in the fourth inning, when Ali Schroder singled with the bases loaded to score Jesse Ihas. Murdoch would follow Schroder with a single of his own plating Marty Ingram, and Zarikoff would deliver the dagger, ending it with a double to right, to score two and bring the 10-run rule into effect.

Amazingly Cox would go the distance on the mound facing 13 batters (one over the minimum) in four innings pitched, giving up just two hits and no walks, while striking out two Langley batters. The Montrose pitcher threw just 30 pitches, 22 of which were strikes.

Cox also went 2-for-2 at the plate with a walk, an RBI, and three runs scored, while McKinnon and Zarikoff were 2-for-3, with a pair of RBIs each coming from Zarikoff, Murdoch, and Sheets.

Trail played Forest Hills Wednesday afternoon but scores were unavailable at press time. They play undefeated South Vancouver on Thursday at 11 a.m.
