Langley Black Sox sweep weekend series

The Langley Black Sox shone last weekend against a Lake Hill Little League team from Victoria.

Langley Little League’s 11/12 Major A squad swept the two-game series at City Park.

In the opener, the Black Sox rallied from being runs down in the final inning to win 7-6, with a key two-run double by Tyler Wright completing the comeback.

Other Langley players with timely hits were Trent Davies, Carson Foster, Andrew Fassbender, Carson Grimm, Zac Laird, Kevin Hollowink, and Dane Gisbrect.

In the second game, the Black Sox were able to keep the momentum going and scored four runs in the first inning on their way to a very impressive 9-2 win.

A spectacular no-out diving catch by Carson Grimm in right field in the bottom of the third inning kept Langley’s momentum.

Key hits in game two came from Conner Shirley, Trent Davies, Ben Natingor, Tyler Wright, Andrew Fassbender, Nathaniel Northup, Kevin Hollowink, and Zac Laird.

Langley received outstanding pitching in both games from Trent Davies, Nathaniel Northup, and Tyler Wright in the opening game, and Conner Shirley, Zac Laird, and Kevin Hollowink during the second contest.     

This weekend, the Black Sox hope to continue their winning ways when they host Little Mountain for a couple of games.
