Maple Ridge lefty pitches a gem at Canada Cup

Maple Ridge pitcher Kyle Ross came within one out of a complete-game shutout, as he pitched Team B.C. to a 5-1 victory over Alberta to win the Baseball Canada Cup on Sunday night in Saskatoon.

Ross was dominant through six and two-thirds innings. He allowed only one earned run, three hits and four walks, while striking out six batters.

He was relieved after allowing a run with two out in the top of the seventh.

The junior national team member was also a key starter for the Langley Blaze, as they won the Premier Baseball League championship this summer.

Over seven starts, the lefty Ross posted an ERA of 0.85, and had 51 strikeouts in 41 innings pitched. His record was 5-1.

Two other Ridge players on the Blaze were Andre Pelletier and Mason Verge. Pelletier hit 0.255 and had 20 RBI and 20 runs in 106 at bats.
