Nelson Diamondbacks battle hard

Fuelled by the strong pitching of Braeden Zarikoff, the Diamondbacks played their best game of the season

Still looking for their win of the season, the Nelson Junior Babe Ruth Diamondbacks took on the powerhouse Trail Nationals at Queen Elizabeth diamond on Saturday for a double header.

Fuelled by the strong pitching of Braeden Zarikoff, the Diamondbacks played their best baseball game of the season in the opening game of the afternoon.

A timely hit by Jayden Maida in the second inning drove in two runs to give the Diamondbacks a 3-1 lead. And despite pushing the lead to 4-1 in the third inning, the strong Nationals team chewed away at the margin. In the sixth inning the Trail squad took the 5-4 lead which they did not relinquish.

The second half of the double-header was a lopsided win for Trail.
