The Nelson Cardinals continued their fine season last weekend with a pair of wins. The local Cal Ripken Major team beat Castlegar 7-6 on Saturday and then thumped the Nelson Tigers 11-0 on Sunday.

In Saturday’s contest the locals trailed 6-0 after three innings, but in the third a single by Kelton Forte was followed by a home run by Jackson Hare to close the gap. Three more runs in the third inning drew Nelson to within one.

Cardinals pitcher Alek McMillan shut down Castlegar in their final at bat, leaving the door open for final rally.

In the final inning, Alexander George was walked, Forte hit a single and then Hare crushed a triple to score two and win the game for the Cardinals.

Playing their local rivals on Sunday, it was all Cardinals in the 11-0 win.

McMillan and Forte combined for the win on the mound with some fine pitching.

Offensively the Cardinals were boosted by back-to-back-to-back home runs in the first inning by Hare, McMillan and Forte.

Other players with strong games at the plate included Lukas Faehndrich and Felix McMillian.

It’s another busy weekend at the Queen Elizabeth diamond with the rookie division and Junior Babe Ruth teams in action.
