Bantams take on double headers

Bantams lose three games out of four during two day double headers

There was plenty of baseball action last weekend as the Cowichan Valley Bantam AAA Mustangs took to the Chemainus ball field for two double headers on both Saturday and Sunday.

 

The Bantams faced Cloverdale, the second best team in the league, on Saturday, July 9.

 

Cloverdale won the first game by 10 runs, but the resilient Mustangs played a much better second game. However, the team lost a tough game, 1 to 0.

 

The Bantams next took on Burnaby during their second double header on Sunday, July 10, losing the first game 17-7.

 

The team won their second game 7-6. Outstanding performances were played by Keegan Hankins, Adam Fukakusa, Shawn Arabsky and T.J. Mah.

 

Kudos also go out to Robert Busch who closed out the victory on the mound for Zach Diewert.

 

Overall, the Mustangs record for the weekend was  one win and three losses.  Coaches say the team had a good weekend despite the scores. The Bantam AAA Mustangs next home game will be in Duncan on July 20.
