The Powerhouse Drywall Athletics powered their way to a 9-1 victory over Happy’s Source for Sports Reds in Friday night Comox Valley Men’s Baseball League action at Bill Moore Memorial Park.
It was a tight contest until the fourth inning thanks in part to the starting pitchers – Josh Chapman for the A’s and Bob Atwood for the Reds.
Dennis Barna got the offence going for the A’s when he hit a go-ahead double and the Reds were not able to come up with any offence for the rest of the game.
In the second game of the night, the Investors Group Dodgers played the A’s to a 6-6 tie.
Barna was once again key at the plate for the A’s, belting a two-run dinger to keep the game tied.
The league is hosting the inaugural Happy’s Source for Sports Men’s Baseball Tournament on Aug. 10-11 with teams from Duncan, Port McNeill, Campbell River and the three local mens teams coming to play.
