The Nanaimo Palladian Pirates don’t lose often, but when they do, they do it in style.
Serauxmen Stadium was the site of the longest game in B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League history on Saturday, a 15-inning affair. Eventually the Coquitlam Redlegs beat the Pirates 2-1.
That was the only loss of the weekend for the junior Pirates. The team went on to mercy the Redlegs 12-2 in the rematch, then sweep the White Rock Tritons 4-2, 4-2 on Sunday at Serauxmen.
In the record-setting game, Bryan Odgers and Aidan Goodall both had two hits.
In the blowout, Nate Odgers earned the win on the mound and helped his own cause by going 3-for-4 at the plate with two triples and three RBI. Bryan Odgers, Tristan Olsen, Goodall and Bryan Borrelli had two hits apiece.
Sunday started off with Bryan Odgers pitching a complete-game victory, striking out eight. Goodall went 2-for-2 and Nate Odgers had two RBI.
In the finale, Goodall threw a complete-game win and Nate Odgers was 2-for-3. Griffin Andreychuk reached base three times and supplied two RBI.
The junior Pirates also won last Wednesday, 3-2 in extra innings against the Parksville Royals on the road. Goodall earned the ‘W’ and Griffin Kent had the game-winning RBI.
