Eagles, Mariners to go 'a-swinging' at RAP

Saanich right-hander Ethan Skuija allowed one earned run in a complete game (eight innings) outing on Saturday (May 24) as the Victoria Eagles (10-9) edged the Langley Blaze 3-2 in the first of their B.C. Premier Baseball League doubleheader.

Skuija’s shining effort was the lone bright spot as the Eagles’ suffered three consecutive losses to finish the weekend trip. The Eagles fell 16-3 to the Blaze in Game 2 on Saturday and were swept by the North Delta Blue Jays on Sunday, 6-1 and 10-3.

The Eagles head right back to the Mainland for a pair of doubleheaders, Saturday versus the Coquitlam Reds and Sunday against the Whalley Chiefs.

Victoria Mariners’ infielder Chris Fougner paced his BCPBL club with four RBIs on Saturday with a 9-1 win over the visiting Parksville Royals at Henderson Park. The Mariners’ (12-5) won the second game 6-0.

The Mariners enjoy a bye this weekend and will play next as the crosstown rivalry revives versus the Eagles, 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 5 at Royal Athletic Park.
