North Delta Blue Jays pitcher Shane Wlodarczak struck out nine batters in a game last week against the Whalley Chiefs.

Blue Jays add another win

North Delta sits in the middle of PBL standings while Whalley Chiefs occupy the basement.

The B.C. Premier Baseball League regular-season schedule was dormant for the Victoria Day long weekend, but prior to the break, the North Delta Blue Jays improved to 9-11 on the season with a 7-1 thumping of the Whalley Chiefs May 16 at Whalley Athletic Park.

The Jays, coming off a 4-1 loss to the Chiefs the weekend before, did most of their damage in the top of the seventh inning, where they plated four runs to break open what had been a slim one-run lead.

Up 3-2, North Delta put runners on second and third after a pair of singles, a passed ball and a stolen base, and a single from Clint Taylor cashed in Shoma Sasaki and Jordy Cunningham. One batter later, Taylor scored on a double by Sebastian Hayes, who in turn scored after Trent Fletcher reached base on an error.

Whalley could not mount a comeback in the bottom half of the inning, as Delta pitcher Shane Wlodarczak put three Chief batters down in order.

Wlodarczak pitched seven innings, allowing just one run while striking out nine.

Whalley managed just three hits, and only one – a triple by third baseman Braeden Allenmann – went for extra bases.

The loss meant the Chiefs still occupy the PBL basement with a record of 3-14, while the Blue Jays sit in the middle of the pack.

The Chiefs travelled to White Rock Tuesday for a game against the Tritons, while the Blue Jays next hit the field today (Thursday) at home against the Vancouver Cannons.
