Cougars clipped in Abby comeback

Chilliwack’s peewee AA baseball Cougars hosted Abbotsford Black at Fairfield Park Tuesday night, falling 12-8 in a see-saw battle.

Pitchers Tanner Ohlsen and Tyson Loewen got the Cougars off to a solid start, allowing just two runs and five base-runners through three innings.

Seth Tagle and Tyler Charlton helped defensively with big catches, and Shane Rutley turned in a double play in the second.

Third baseman Bailey Whitehouse and shortstop Colin Kellington kept several balls in the infield, helping Chilliwack to an early 6-2 lead.

Whitehouse, Kellington and Rutley both got on base their first three trips to the plate, with Reece Howden and Loewen going two for three.

Kellington had the big knock with a triple, and Loewen added a stand-up double.

Gabriel Olivares didn’t get on base but had some excellent at-bats.

The Abby lumber came alive in the fifth and sixth innings. Helped by some Chilliwack fielding miscues, the 6-2 lead turned into a 12-8 final.

The Cougars are back at it Saturday, visiting Ridge Meadows for a double-header against the Royals.
