Royals earn split with Langley

It was all Parksville, all the time in second game

Parksville third baseman Jordan Dugray tags out a Langley Blaze baserunner on Saturday.

The second game of a doubleheader with the Langley Blaze was all Parksville from the opening inning.

The Quality Foods Royals took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first, when Kevin Biro scored on an RBI single. After that, the Royals didn’t look back.

Parksville racked up three more runs in the second inning, when Ashton Martin drove in three runners on a single. He then scored later that inning on a Langley throwing error to first base.

The Blaze would get running aboard in the third and fourth innings, but leave them there, as Royals starting pitcher Bryan Pawlina went to work, striking out nine for the game. He would end up with the win.

After Liam Joyce came on in relief in the seventh, the Blaze would get one run in off of two hits. Langley’s Ricky Bertrand would tally the RBI.

Royals’ coach Dave Wallace said the opening game on Saturday up at Springfield Park, was a tight one — right up until the final inning.

The Royals held a 2-1 lead, only to watch Langley tie the game, forcing extra innings. In the eighth, Wallace said the Blaze scored four times, winning 6-2. Mackenzie Parlow, who normally serves as catcher, picked up the loss on the mound.

The Royals are back in action for two more at home this Saturday, July 2, against the Nanaimo Pirates. Game time is 12:15 p.m.
