Cardinals win Campbell River baseball tourney

Comox Valley squad takes top spot at 'A' All Star Rep Baseball Classic

This past weekend the Comox Valley Cardinals travelled up to Campbell River to play in the “A” All Star Rep Baseball Classic Tournament. The boys played four terrific games and came up on top as 2014 champs.

First game on Saturday we played Campbell River and came out victorious 15-2, played some great defence and the hitters were aggressive – Gabe Schovanek going 3-4 (3 RBI) at the plate and playing great shortstop.

Game 2 we came up against Victoria and won 9-3 with a strong game from Kevin Mulrooney 2-3 (2 RBI). Game 3 against the Saltspring Salties we came out on top with a 13-2 big win – again pitchers were very strong and we all played solid in the field. At the plate Jordan Dennis was on fire and was 3-3 (3 RBI) pounding the baseball as was Harry Buckle also going 3-3 (3 RBI).

The three victories that put Comox Valley in the final game up against Campbell River. The boys battled all weekend in the 30 degree-plus heat and with one last win we took the championship 10-3. Impressive pitching performance by starter Jacob Volkers going  five innings strong, with set-up man Matthias Smith sitting C.R. down 1-2-3 in the sixth inning and closer Brier Pilon coming on in the seventh to finish things off.

At the plate, great performances by Tyler Newby going 2-3 with two doubles and Connor McNamee getting on base three times. “So nice to see so many kids contribute to entire team victories,” a team spokesperson said.
