Shane Kraemer struck out four of the five batters he faced to pick up the save as the Langley Senior Blaze edged the Coquitlam Angels 2-1.
The two Pacific Metro Baseball League rivals squared off at McLeod Park on June 5.
Langley trailed 1-0 until the bottom of the fifth inning when Brad Ferraro’s double scored Jovan Ewusie from third base. And two batters later, Louis Boyd’s single scored Ferraro for the winning run.
Ryan Eiswerth picked up the win, allowing one run on five hits while striking out five over five and one-third innings.
The win improved the Blaze to 2-0 as in the league-opener on June 3, Jesse Peters threw a complete game with eight strikeouts and Bobby Wagner drove in a pair of runs in a 3-1 victory over the Burnaby Bulldogs.
Langley is scheduled to host the Burnaby Collegiate Bulldogs tonight (Tuesday) at 7 p.m. at McLeod Park in Pacific International League play.
The Blaze are 0-2 in the PIL.
