Victoria Mariners’ base-runner Ben Goertzen dives back into first base as Tritons’ Patrick van den Brink reaches for the throw during a game Saturday at South Surrey Athletic Park.

Tritons look to rally against Whalley rivals

White Rock's Jansen Crossley homers in win over Nanaimo last weekend

If the White Rock Tritons are to put something of a winning streak together, tonight will be a good time to start.

The struggling BC Premier Baseball League team is set to host the Whalley Chiefs in a rare Friday night doubleheader – the games were moved to tonight after originally being scheduled for Saturday afternoon – and are badly in need of a couple victories.

The Tritons won once in four games last weekend – losing twice to the Victoria Mariners before splitting a doubleheader with the Nanaimo Pirates – and currently sit with a 3-16 won-loss record.

The Tritons, meanwhile, earned their only win of the week Sunday morning at South Surrey Athletic Park, 4-3 against the Pirates.

Nanaimo jumped out to an early lead in the game after scoring a pair of first-inning runs, but the Tritons scored four in the third to take the lead.

The first run was plated when a Dawson Veeneman sacrifice fly scored Aaron Wiegert from third base, and the home team took the lead one batter later, when second baseman Jansen Crossley crushed a three-run home run that scored himself, Graydon Rasmussen and Liam Mitchell.

Tritons’ pitcher Patrick van den Brink had his best performance of the season, too, lasting the full seven innings while striking out 10.

After tonight’s twin bill against Whalley, the Tritons don’t take to the field until Tuesday, when they take on the Coquitlam Reds.
