Perfect Baseball Home Opener

March 25th, 2018

It was rather chilly, but the VIU Mariner Baseball team performed well winning all four games versus the University of Calgary Dinos. In game 1 it took until the top of the fifth before a run was scored, UC went up 3-0. A big 6th inning saw the Mariners score seven and thats how it ended 7-3.  Game 2 had the UC Dinos lead 4-0 until the Mariner bats got hot in the bottom of the 5th scoring 6, once again that was all she wrote, ending 6-4. Game 3 went to the 11th inning, VIU scored two in the bottom of the eigth to tie it 5-5 winning 6-5 in the 11th. In Game 4 VIU had to hold onto a 4-3 lead in the 8th when the UC Dinos loaded the bases but were unable to convert. A super entertaining weekend of baseball !

VIU hopes to continue their success versus the Okanagan College Coyotes. Saturday, March 31st 12noon and 3pm, then again April 1st 11am and 2pm.
