Sooke Triangle Peewee’s own rocket-pitching machine Chris Piatkowski tosses the ball at last Saturday’s game.

Injuries hurt Sooke Triangle Peewees

A summary from the Sooke Peewees in last weekend's baseball game at the SEAPARC.

Saturday’s double header at  SEAPARC pitted the Sooke Peewees against Juan de Fuca and Sooke Mosquitoes  against  Gordon Head.

The bats of Faber Mossey, Risto Ringma Cameron  Bucci  and Conner Keys provided the power behind the Sooke offence and the pitching of Risto Ringma kept the Gordon Head players off the score board throwing only 11 pitches to retire the side in the fifth inning.

The Sooke Mosquitoes have played their last home game and will now go on the road for the next three weeks. The long road trip will take them throughout the Greater Victoria area playing four more league games, one tournament in Colwood and the much anticipated playoffs in the first week of June.

The Peewees were dealt a blow with the news that Storm Spackman had crushed his toe and will be out of the line-up for the next couple of weeks. Storm provides the team with solid hitting, terrific fielding and wicked pitching. Shark Bainsbridge received a blow to his wrist and was taken out in the second inning, compounding the pitching woes of the team.

Chris Piatkowski was exceptional bringing huge heat for three innings. Beau Hicks stepped-up to finish the last two innings and and although Sooke lost by a couple of runs, many of the  Sooke supporters pondered the one that got away due to injuries.
