Sun Devils sweep Nats, host Vernon Wednesday

The league-leading Kelowna Sun Devils will be looking for their 20th victory of 2017 when they host the Vernon Canadians Wednesday in B.C. 18U AAA baseball action.

Game time at Edith Gay Park is 5:30 p.m.

The first-place Sun Devils pushed their season mark to 19-3 with a homefield sweep of the North Fraser Nationals on the weekend.

The series opener saw Gavin Barrett pitch six scoreless innings for his fifth win of the season in a 10-0 Kelowna win.

Noah Ringness-Law (.523) delivered an eye-popping 4-for-4 performance at the plate, with three home runs and five RBIs. Jay Taylor (.320) aided the attack going 2-for-3.

In Game 2, Logan Bligh’s walkoff single scored Spencer Klassen in the eighth inning to push the Devils past North Fraser 5-4.

Senior Jay Taylor took to the hill for only his third start of the season, went four innings, allowed just two earned runs, struck out four and left with a no decision.

Nathan Ringness-Law took over in the fifth inning and pitched four strong innings for the win, allowing no runs and striking out five.

Klassen led the offensive charges with four hits and three stolen bases. Dreyton Nelmes and Bligh each added a pair of hits.

The Sun Devils will host the B.C. midget AAA provincial championship in late July.
