The North Delta Blue Jays lost more ground in the B.C. Premier Baseball League playoff race, losing two of three games last week.

After winning 11 of their first 13 games, North Delta has slipped into fifth place with losses in seven of their last nine.

The Jays lost in North Vancouver for the second time in three days last Thursday (June 11), falling 1-0 to the first-place North Shore Twins.

Max Kondratowski took the loss for North Delta. The 16 year-old took his second loss in three decisions after pitching six innings and allowing one earned run on just seven singles and two walks.

The Jays managed just three hits, all singles.

North Delta snapped their five-game losing streak at home Saturday at Mackie Park, topping the Parksville Royals 6-4 in the first of two games.

Mackenzie Marquis was the offensive leader for the Jays, going two-for-three with an RBI (run batted in) and a run scored.

North Delta managed just six hits, including a double from Braeden Miller, but took advantage of nine walks issued by Parksville pitchers.

Alex Davis was the winning pitcher, throwing all seven innings and allowing four unearned runs on five hits and three walks while collecting four strikeouts.

The Jays were unable to complete a sweep of the last-place Royals, losing the second game 6-3. With the game tied 2-2 after five innings, Parksville took advantage of three North Delta errors to score four unearned runs in the sixth inning.

Marquis with a double and a triple, Logan Newman and Gota Kinoshita each had a pair of hits for the Blue Jays.

Two teams from Vancouver Island will be at Mackie Park next weekend. The 23-10 Victoria Eagles are the visitors Saturday for games at 1 and 3:30 p.m.

The 18-11 Nanaimo Pirates are the opposition Sunday, with start times set for 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
