Wagner walk-off gives Senior Blaze victory

Langley senior mens' team tames Bulldogs 5-4 in Pacific Metro Baseball League action

A Bobby Wagner single gave the Langley Senior Blaze a walk-off 5-4 victory.

The senior men’s baseball team was hosting the Burnaby Bulldogs on Monday night at McLeod Park.

The Bulldogs had tied the score at four with three runs in the top of the sixth and then another in the seventh. And with extra innings looming, Wagner hit a two-out single which scored Tyler Willson from second base.

Willson finished with a pair of RBIs while Bob Foerster and Clayton Howell each drove in one run.

The win improved Langley to 2-2 in the Pacific Metro Baseball League.

The Blaze, made up of local ball players home for the summer from college and university, also played a pair of Pacific International League games on Sunday, earning a split with the Seattle Studs in Tacoma.

Langley is 5-1 in the PIL.

The Blaze won the opener 6-2 as Zach Mihic, Brad Ferraro and Shane Kraemer each drove in a pair of runs. Steven Federau earned the win, allowing two runs and coming within one out of a complete game.

Game two saw Langley leading 5-2 after three innings, but Seattle scored nine unanswered runs to win 11-5.

The team also played two exhibition games on Saturday versus the North Sound Emeralds in Lynnwood, Wash.

The Blaze lost both games by a 2-1 score.
