Baseball Cougars crush Canadians

Chilliwack's bantam AA baseball Cougars demolished the Vancouver Canadians 7-0.

After a week that saw two of their games rescheduled due to weather, Chilliwack’s bantam AA baseball Cougars resumed play on Saturday in Vancouver.

The Cougars continued their winning ways, demolishing the Canadians 7-0.

Colin Kellington got his first start of the season, striking out four Vancouver batters over two innings.

Josh Anderson pitched three innings of relief with Jordan Scherbey and Tony Pharand logging one inning apiece to close out the win.

Chilliwack’s offence was kick-started by Alex Leiper’s lead off double in the third inning, and Kellington’s lead off  triple in the sixth. Anderson, Pharand and Donovan Moorman came through with clutch RBI’s.

Vancouver pitchers helped the Chilliwack offence, issuing seven walks.

The Cougars created havoc on the base-paths, swiping 12 bases. Moorman and Dan Rogers were the most notorious thieves, stealing three apiece.

Shane Rutley stole two.

Now 5-0 on the season, Chilliwack plays three home games at Fairfield Island this week.

Chilliwack hosts the Surrey Cardinals Tuesday, the Langley/Aldergrove Dodgers Thursday and the Richmond Chuckers Saturday.
