Eagles win bantam-AAA baseball title in Oak Bay

Victoria Eagles are B.C.'s bantam-AAA champions

White Rock’s third baseman Dylan Yeager waits for the call after tagging Victoria Eagle’s Mike Varley at Carnarvon Park during the bantam-AAA provincials.

A dramatic two-run home run by Sam Stevenson took the lead back in a see-saw final as the Victoria Eagles won the bantam-AAA provincial baseball championship.

Victoria defeated the Vancouver Mounnties 8-5 in Sunday’s final at Carnarvon field, where the provincial tournament played out from Aug. 4-7.

Stevenson’s dinger made it 5-3 for Victoria late in the game. The Eagles added three more runs, two from a big single by Mitch Bryan.

It was a revenge win for the Eagles who lost to the Mounties 11-8 earlier in the tournament during a delayed game. The Eagles started the tournament in fine fashion outscoring Burnaby and Tri-City 22-3 before the loss to Vancouver.

A win over Abbotsford put the team in the semifinals against Cloverdale.

Pitcher Kurt Horne struckout 15 Cloverdale hitters and as the Eagles won 7-1.

The Eagles will now travel to Vaughan, Ontario to compete in the 2011 Bantam AAA Nationals.
