Chilliwack Cougar pitcher shines at Canada Cup

Cade Smith threw a complete game shutout for Team BC in a win over Ontario, and Chilliwack's Dylan Ohlsen pitched in at the plate.

A Chilliwack native and a Chilliwack Cougar helped Team BC snag silver at the 2016 Canada Cup baseball tournament.

Dylan Ohlsen and Cade Smith repped BC at the tourney, which took place Aug. 3-7 in Fort McMurray, AB.

Ohlsen is a Chilliwackian who plays for the BC Premier Abbotsford Cardinals.

Smith is an Abbotsford native and pitcher for the Chilliwack midget Cougars.

Ohlsen played third base, going 1-1 with a walk last Wednesday as Team BC opened with an 8-0 loss to Saskatchewan.

The British Columbians won their next five round-robin games, dumping Ontario (7-0), Alberta (6-3), Saskatchewan (10-4), Ontario (4-0) and Alberta (5-4) to take first place in their group and move into the quarter-finals.

Smith was the pitcher in the second win over Ontario, throwing a complete game shutout.

The six-foot-five righty went seven innings, allowing four hits and three walks while striking out seven. That was his only start in the tournament and his only other appearance was an unsuccessful at-bat against Alberta.

Ohlsen, meanwhile, had two walks and a stolen base as Team BC advanced with a 4-0 quarter-final win over Newfoundland.

He had a hit and a walk in the gold-medal game, but his team fell 6-1 to Saskatchewan.

Ohlsen appeared in seven games overall, going 3-12 with five walks and five strikeouts.
