Chilliwack’s brand new Fraser Valley College Baseball club opened their spring schedule last weekend, dropping a 9-5 decision to the Vancouver Island Baseball Institute Mariners.
Dylan Emmons started for FVCB, pitching four and two-thirds innings.
He only allowed one hit and struck out three, but struggled mightily with his control.
Emmons walked nine and had four wild pitches, surrendering seven runs including a home-run.
Evan Smith worked in relief, pitching two and one-third innings. Smith allowed two runs (one earned), yielding two hits and three walks.
FVCB banged out seven hits against VIBI pitching.
Nick Laflamme went two-for-five to lead the attack.
Donovan Moorman drove in two runs with Laflamme, Trevor Brammer and Alex Thiessen plating one apiece.
FVCB settled for singles, failing to record an extra-base hit.
They did walk five times, with Thiessen taking two free passes.
The locals committed six defensive errors including three by Brennan Hegel.
FVCB will see a lot of Douglas College this weekend.
They host the Royals today (Friday) at Fairfield Island with 12 and 2 p.m. start times.
They visit Douglas College Saturday.
The new team will play in the Canadian Colleges Baseball Conference.
