Junior Jays win two more

North Delta sweeps Fraser Valley Chiefs

All that is keeping the North Delta Blue Jays from first place in the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League is a lack of games played.

North Delta took two games from the Fraser Valley Junior Chiefs Saturday at Whalley Stadium, winning by scores of 4-1 and 4-0.

Trailing 1-0 for most of the first game, the Jays scored twice in the sixth inning the take the lead then added two more insurance runs in the seventh.

Ryan Braun drove in a pair of runs for North Delta, while pitcher Brett Sakaki allowed one run on one hits and three walks over six innings for the win.

Roberto Bevacqua of Fraser Valley took the loss despite throwing a one-hitter over six innings.

Sodai Hoshi tossed a complete-game shutout in the second game, leading North Delta to the win. The Chiefs managed six hits and a walk of the North Delta pitcher, who fanned seven Fraser Valley batters.

Shoma Sasaki drove in two of the four North Delta runs.

The Chiefs lost all four games on the weekend. After the two losses to North Delta, Fraser Valley was swept in a double header Sunday by the Langley Blaze.

Garrett Hasner was two-for-four at the plate in game one, a 5-2 Blaze victory. Langley won the second game 10-0.

Fraser Valley is at 9-14 on the season, and are in eighth place in the 13-team league.
