No-no for Chilliwack’s Walker

Tom Robson deserved a better fate.

The Langley Blaze pitcher was near-perfect in the second game of Sunday’s B.C. Premier Baseball League (BCPBL) double header against the Fraser Valley Chiefs at Whalley Stadium.

The 17-year-old from Ladner struck out 10 of the 21 batters he faced, and allowed just one walk and a single by Jordan McComb.

Unfortunately for Robson, he ran into Chilliwack native Ty Walker, who tossed a no-hitter to lead his Chiefs to a 1-0 win.

“Tom Robson is the best pitcher in Canada,” said Chiefs head coach Ernie Hawkins. “He’s been picked for the national team, and he’s a beauty. He’ll be a high draft pick. But Ty Walker just threw a better game, he no-hit them. We’re glad to get the win for Ty.”

Walker, an 18-year-old Sands secondary school (Delta) student, walked just one batter, striking out five for a complete-game win, his third in as many starts.
