Tritons miss playoffs after losses to Cardinals

White Rock loses three games to finish off BC Premier Baseball League regular-season schedule.

The White Rock Tritons won’t be participating in the BC Premier Baseball League playoffs after all, after losing twice Sunday to the Abbotsford Cardinals.

The two teams had been battling for the PBL’s eighth and final playoff spot, and White Rock – which also lost a game last Tuesday to the Langley Blaze – needed to win both Sunday matches to leapfrog the Cardinals in the standings.

In the first game, White Rock lost 6-0, before dropping the second game of the doubleheader 3-1.

Pitcher Patrick van den Brink went the distance in the first game, striking out nine and walking just one in six innings of work.

His counterpart with Abby, however – Carter Loewen – was even sharper, striking out 10 batters en route to a no-hitter. At the plate, he also hit a home run.

The PBL Provincial Championships are scheduled for July 31-Aug. 3 at Royal Athletic Park in Victoria.
