Cougars split four as summer season ends

Chilliwack's midget AAA baseball Cougars ended the regular season with a record of 18-20 heading into this weekend's provincial tourney.

Chilliwack’s midget AAA Cougars wrapped up their summer baseball schedule with a four-games-in-two-days weekend at Fairfield Island.

The home team came away with a 4-0 shutout win over the South Okanagan Tigers Saturday morning. Pitcher Donovan Moorman threw a one hitter, fanning 10 Tiger batters. The Chilliwack bats managed six hits, with Matt Lamb banging a double and Derek Riediger legging out a triple.

The Cougars took on the Victoria Selects in the afternoon match, falling 3-2. Blake Peeling went the distance on the mound, yielding three hits and three walks while striking out two. Riediger was the lone offensive bright spot, going three for three with a single and two triples.

The Cougars finished off Sunday with a double header against a very good Vancouver Mounties squad (26-12). Chilliwack won the opener, with pitchers Mike and Dan Rogers giving up three earned runs on seven hits and four walks.

Together, they struck out nine Mounties.

Offensively, Ryan Petkau and Cody Hartle had a triple each and Moorman went two for three at the plate.

The rematch was an 11-9 loss in a back-and-forth game that saw Vancouver stage a four-run rally in the seventh inning.

Petkau and Dan Rogers had triples in this one, with Hartle smacking a double.

Chilliwack finished the regular season 18-20.

They host the midget provincial championships this weekend at Fairfield Island.
