The Cape Breton West Warriors feasted on Hants North pitching on Saturday to sweep the Jays 12-1 and 14-0 in U13 Bluenose League baseball action.
Played in Port Hood at the Dave Muise Memorial ball field, the 11-man Warriors had multiple hits and runs up and down the order.
Meanwhile, the Warriors’ pitching staff – which is everyone in the lineup – threw strikes and trusted the defence to make the outs.
“Our bats definitely touched them up today,” said Cape Breton West coach Brent MacEachern after the second game of the doubleheader. “Landon (Fraser) threw a great game for us, and in the first game, Luke (MacEachern) had a no-hitter going into the fifth.”
MacEachern said the team is playing well defensively, but there’s still work to be done before provincials.
