August 11, 2013, SHERBROOKE, QC (ISN) -Colton Wood (Victoria, BC) fired a one-hit, complete game shutout to lead British Columbia to a 5-0 win over Ontario and a gold medal at the Canada Games.

Colto Wood struck out ten batters and didn’t allow an Ontario hit after giving up a single with one out in the top of the first inning.

BC did all the scoring they would need in the home half of the first when they took advantage of three Ontario errors to score five runs which was more than enough for Wood to work with.

BC put runners on second and third after two singles and a fielder’s choice which led to Justin Lawrence (Surrey, BC) scoring the first run of the game after an error at third base.

With the score 3-0 and runners on second and third and two out, the third Ontario error of the inning scored both runs to put BC up by five.

Wood took control from there on out allowing only two runners the rest of the way coming on a hit batter in the fourth and an error in the sixth.

Although not figuring in the scoring, BC’s Jesse Mycock (Victoria, BC) was 2-for-3 with a single and double.
