Cardinals drop four straight

Abbotsford BC Premier Baseball League team no-hit in final game.

The Abbotsford Cardinals’ struggles in close games continued over the weekend as the BC Premier Baseball League club was swept in a pair of doubleheaders at Delair Park.

Coming off a sweep of the Victoria Mariners last Thursday, the Cardinals dropped both halves of Saturday’s double bill with the North Delta Blue Jays by scores of 12-10 and 3-2.

The first game was a back-and-forth affair that saw both teams swap big innings. The Cardinals came to bat in the seventh inning down by four runs. A rally saw Abbotsford score twice and bring the tying run to the plate before North Delta put the Cardinals away for good.

The second game was even tighter, and went to extra innings. The Cardinals managed to match an eighth-inning North Delta run to extend the game even further. But the Blue Jays scored again in the ninth and Abbotsford, which only recorded four hits on the day, couldn’t pull off another come back.

Sunday’s doubleheader was also unsuccessful.

The Cardinals leapt to an early 2-0 lead in the first game only to watch the Nanaimo Pirates tie it in the sixth inning and pull ahead in the seventh inning. The final score was 4-2.

The second game saw Nanaimo Pirates pitcher Robert Busch no-hit the Cardinals en route to a 3-0 win. Busch struck out six while walking only two batters.

The Cardinals play their next home games July 16 at Delair Park.
