Monday, June 24

  • 2 - Inland Control and Services Tigers

Knights’ shortstop Kolby Lukinchuk and third baseman Derian Potskin cranked back-to-back homers in the sixth inning, both solo shots and with two outs.

Jake Anker also rounded home base three times, going 3-4 on offense.

Tuesday, June 25

  • 10 - Queensway Auto World Red Sox
  • 7 - D.O.B Contracting Gladiators

The Red Sox remain on a roll for 2019, earning their eighth victory to stay undefeated.

They also lead the season series against the Gladiators 3-0, but this game was also the first time they allowed more than three runs.

Wednesday, June 26

  • 8 - Prince George Surg Med Midget Knights
  • 3 - D.O.B Contracting Gladiators

The Knights entered the final inning three outs from shutting out the Gladiators, but the designated visitors avoided that fate by scoring three runs.

On offense, the Knights were hot off the sticks with 10 hits; two came from Potskin including a double in the third deep into right-centerfield.

Catcher Nolan Hull clobbered the ball in the same direction immediately following Potskin’s blast, recording an RBI triple en route to a three-run frame.

Thursday, June 27

  • 11 - JRJ Construction Orioles
  • 7 - Inland Control and Services Tigers

The defending-champions O’s had seven runs in the second inning, including a two-run RBI single by Kalen Kirkpatrick and a one-run RBI triple from Jon Bourassa.

Altogether, the Orioles got 15 hits to the Tigers’ seven, who struggled at the plate in the second half of the contest.

O’s Pitcher Craig Langille threw eight strikeouts through five innings on the hill, while Cole Waldie closed out the victory with three of his own.
