Duncan RiverCats remain perfect

Beginning with a mercy victory at home last Thursday, the midget AA Duncan RiverCats went on a three-game run last week to improve their record to 7-0. Although the RiverCats and Victoria’s AAA team played a full seven innings last Thursday, the game was over after five as the Duncan team led 12-2. Starting pitcher Jordy Frost threw four innings without giving up a hit and struck out seven, while the offence got three hits from Blair Robertson and two each from Zach Komst, Reiya Tomida and Frost.

On Sunday, the RiverCats travelled to Campbell River to face both the host team and Comox. The first game was another five-inning mercy, as Duncan topped Campbell River 14-1. Tomida threw three innings of one-hit shutout ball, while Keir Baknes, Tyler McWhirter and Adam Sakuma had two hits apiece.

The RiverCats went on to beat Comox 14-8 in the second game, as Sakuma pitched the first four innings and allowed just two runs. Robertson and Jaysen Paddle each had three hits each, while Komst and Baknes had two hits.

The RiverCats will play host to Campbell River this Sunday with games at Evans Park at noon and 3 p.m.
