For the Keizertimes
A three-run Vancouver seventh inning was too much for the Volcanoes on Monday at Vancouver, as the Canadians won 8-4.
The Canadians outhit Salem-Keizer only 12-10, but the Volcanoes repeatedly failed to make enough of their hits count. After Volcano starter Pat Young gave up six hits and three runs in four innings, newcomer Michael Connolly relieved him and became the losing pitcher with an 0-1 record.
Vancouver scored the first run of the game in the first inning. Chaz Frank walked, stole second base and scored on a single by Andy Fermin. In the Canadian second, Melvin Garcia doubled to right field and scored as Frank singled.
Salem-Keizer’s first run came in the third. Jeremy Sy singled to left, and Brian Ragira brought him home with a double to right.
