Chemainus baseball squad goes the distance in playoff final against the Astros

Chemainus Brewers came within a game of winning it all in the South Island Baseball League this season.

The Brewers played the Victoria Astros in the playoff final and the best-of-three series went the distance.

The Astros won the opener 6-4, but the Brewers bounced back for a 4-1 victory to set up a deciding game.

The Astros spoiled the Brewers’ celebration plans with a 6-3 triumph in the winner-take-all battle.

The Brewers got to the final with a two-game sweep of the Lambrick Park Giants.

Following a 10-0 whitewashing behind the shutout pitching of Jace Hamm, the Brewers finished off the Giants 16-5 to advance against the Astros.

With 11 teams in the league, all Victoria-based except for the Brewers, it was a great achievement for the team to make the final in just its second year at the junior men’s level.
