Tough summer nears end for Eagles

Victoria Eagles BCPBL

Sliding through summer Victoria Eagles base runner Max Newton slides into third

Victoria Eagles base runner Max Newton slides into third, safe from the throw gathered by third baseman Bill Germaine of the Langley Blaze during game 2 of the doubleheader at Lambrick Park in Saanich on Tuesday. The Blaze won 7-2 and 4-3.

The Eagles have struggled in their sophomore B.C. Premier Baseball League winning just 13 of their first 44 games though the team has its share of highlights.

Pitcher Nick Pivetta played for the junior national team in the Cuba Summer Series earlier this month and is a hopeful to play at the Americas World Junior Qualifier Sept. 23 to Oct. 2 in Columbia.

Pivetta’s one of seven Eagles committed to play at college next year.

On Wednesday the team visited the Delta Blue Jays. The Eagles end their season in Vancouver against the Cannons on Sunday (July 24).
