A seventh-inning error allowed Quintin Nakamura to score from second base and snap a 6-6 tie as the Langley Junior Blaze won their seventh straight game, 7-6.

The Blaze were playing the White Rock Junior Tritons at South Surrey Athletic Park on June 25 and the victory improved Langley to a B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League-leading record of 24-2.

The Tritons did advance the tying run to second base in their half of the inning, but Matthew Poirier nailed down the final out.

Markus Gregson led the team offensively, going 4-for-4 with a double and three RBIs.

The Blaze host a pair of doubleheaders this weekend at McLeod Park.

On Saturday, they face the Nanaimo Junior Pirates (11-19) and on Sunday, it is the Victoria Junior Mariners (24-11).
