Host Beacon Hill sits 1-1 at B.C. Little League baseball championships in Victoria

Win over fellow local squad Layritz evens record

Host Beacon Hill’s 11- and 12-year-old all-stars evened their round robin record to 1-1 Sunday after beating city champion Layritz 11-0 at the B.C. Little League Championships at Hollywood Park in Fairfield.

Leadoff batter Walker Selley led the winners with two hits and two runs scored and Spencer McGhie had a home run, while eight other team members hit safely in the game. Sam Jordan picked up the win on the mound for Beacon Hill, while Tyler Rowe was tagged with the loss for Layritz.

Beacon Hill, which next up plays Fraser Valley at 6 p.m. on Monday, was coming off a 7-3 loss to New Westminster in Saturday’s opener.

After falling behind 6-0 through two and-a-half innings, the locals scored three runs in the bottom of the third to narrow the gap. That was as close as they would get, however as New West added another run in the sixth.

Selley had two of Beacon Hill’s four hits on the day, with McGhie and Darcy Sprigg recording the others. Cole Crozier had three hits and winning pitcher Ben Hewitt had two hits, including a home run, to pace the mainlanders’ attack.

White Rock defeated New West 14-4 this afternoon while Vancouver Little Mountain and North Shore’s Highlands are on the diamond at 4 p.m.

Other results from Saturday saw White Rock beat Trail 9-2 and Vancouver Little Mountain beat Layritz 17-1.
