Base thief rallies peewee Cougars

Chilliwack Minor Baseball

Chilliwack’s peewee AA Cougars battled visiting Mission to a 6-6- tie last Tuesday at Fairfield Park.

Bailey Whitehouse got the start on the mound for the Cougars, allowing one run on two walks and two hits through two innings.

Chilliwack’s offence started strong with stand-up doubles by Colin Kellington and Tyson Loewen and a clutch RBI by Reece Howden to give the locals a 2-1 lead.

Strong pitching by Howden and a pretty double play by Kellington held Mission to four runs over the next four innings. Another double by Kellington, coupled with RBI’s by Shane Rutley and Howden, put the score at a 5-5 through six innings.

Loewen took the mound to close the game in the seventh.

Mission got three batters on base, but scored just one run.

Kellington produced a diving catch at shortstop and Rutley tracked a popup to the fence to end the inning.

Trailing 6–5, it was left to Gabe Olivares to single handedly tie the game.

Olivares got on base by smashing a stand-up double to centre field. His legs did the rest as he stole third base and then home.
