Cats swat BlueJackets a fourth straight time

If only Victoria could go back and forth to Bremerton each week to play the Kitsap BlueJackets... The HarbouCats continued their recent winning ways - their fifth in a row - while handing Kitsap it's ninth loss in a row Friday night, a 4-1 loss at the Fairgrounds.

Wyler Smith is lovin' him some BlueJackets
Kitsap got off to a good start, touching 'Cats starting pitcher Alex Rogers for an early run in the bottom of the first inning, but that's all the young pitcher would give up on the night, as he raised his league record to 2-1 on the year. He ended up scattering 7 hits, all singles except for a double by ex-Cat Dylan LaVelle. Quintin Torres-Costa pitched a perfect eighth, and Tim Peabody worked around a couple of walks in the ninth to earn the save.

Victoria managed only six hits themselves on the night, and were led by a rejuvenated Wyler Smith who went 2-3 with a run scored. He's loving the BlueJacket games - going 9-15 in te four games, raising his average to an even .300. The rest of the Cats bats slowed down tonight, going a combined 4-21 while picking up 5 walks.

Victoria sends Andrew Nelson to the mound tomorrow looking to make it 6 in a row, and continue dominance over the BlueJackets.
