Slammers struggle as fastpitch season comes to a close

A pair of tough losses have the Chilliwack Slammers at 7-4 heading into the last week of Fraser Valley Men's Fastpitch action.

Chilliwack’s Slammers hit a speedbump in men’s fastpitch action, dropping a pair of games last week.

The Fraser Valley Men’s League team fell 13-12 to the Abbotsford Blazers in a seven-inning barnburner last Thursday. Slugger Adam Tuck hit two grand-slams for Chilliwack, and the Slammers had an eight run lead through two innings.

But the Blazers chipped away, finally taking the lead in the sixth.

Rob Woodrow wielded a productive bat, going three for four with two RBIs and three runs scored.

The Slammers lost 7-0 to Vancouver’s Sar Majors in an inter-league matchup Saturday.

The Vancouver Premier League squad sent Kurt Penner to the mound, and he stymied the Slammer bats.

Fabian Goodwill managed a two-for-two day with two singles. Gary Degroot legged out a triple and a stolen base.

Pitcher Clayton Beck took the loss.

Chilliwack’s last league game is tonight at 7 p.m. at Townsend Park versus Abbotsford Shelcam Construction.

Their overall record is 7-4.
