Baseball: Team B.C. falters

Trail’s Cam Strachan and Team B.C. failed to qualify for the medal round at the 2012 Baseball Canada Junior championship on the weekend.

Trail’s Cam Strachan and Team B.C. failed to qualify for the medal round at the 2012 Baseball Canada Junior championship in Trois Riviere on the weekend.

Team B.C. ended the 10-team tournament on a high note beating Saskatchewan 7-2 Sunday. Peachland’s Dawson Newman struck out 14 batters and gave up just one hit for the victory, as B.C. erupted for four runs in the fourth inning to break open a tight 3-2 match.

However, B.C. got off to a slow start dropping its first three games of the tournament before winning its final two matches. Host team Trois Riviere gave the B.C. team a rude welcome with an 11-1 drubbing in the opening match Thursday night, with Strachan providing the only offence with a double and a run scored. B.C. still couldn’t find its bats in the second match against Manitoba as the prairie team one-hit the left coasters on its way to a 4-1 victory on Friday.

They continued to struggle against Ontario, again just mustering one hit in a 5-2 defeat on Saturday before getting back on track. In an exciting game against New Brunswick, B.C. broke a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the sixth inning to win 3-2.

Quebec went undefeated in the tournament with a 6-0 record, beating Ontario in the final 6-4 while Trois Riviere took the bronze with a 9-3 victory over Nova Scotia.

Down 3-0, Quebec came back scoring two runs in the fourth and fifth innings to go up 4-3, but Ontario responded with a run of its own in the bottom of five. The game remained tied through regulation, however Quebec would end it quickly scoring two runs in the extra frame.
