Barrett pitches gem as Sun Devils earn split

Kelowna splits U18 AAA baseball games with Richmond, heads to Vernon on Saturday

The Kelowna Sun Devils are all even at 10-10 after another split in B.C. midget 18U AAA baseball action.

On Sunday at Lombardy Park, the host Devils went 1-1 against the third-place Richmond Chuckers.

Kelowna led the opener 3-1, but Richmond battled back for a 6-3 win. Starting pitcher Jay Taylor had to give way after pitching only 1 1/3 innings with an upper body injury.

Noah Ringness-Law had a solo home run in the loss, while Brandon Denis and Gavin Barrett each had doubles.

In Game 2, staff ace Barrett tossed a four-hit shutout as the Sun Devils responded with a 9-0 win.

Noah Ringness-Law led the way at the player going 3-for-4.

“We came out on a mission,” said Kelowna coach Rob Law. “Once again Barrett went to work and gave the offense a chance to string a bunch of base hits together.

“On the hill or at the dish, he continues to get better. It was a solid team effort, everybody contributed and when we do that, we are successful.”

This weekend, the Sun Devils head to the North Okanagan for two games on Saturday against the Vernon Canadians.

On Sunday, Kelowna will be on the coast for two against the Aldergrove Dodgers.
