COTE ST. LUC, QUE. — McGill got a second solid pitching performance on Friday, this time from sophomore James Vardy of Pointe-Claire, Que., as they earned their second win at the Canadian Collegiate Baseball Association Championship, 6–1 over the Saint Mary’s Huskies.

As teammate Adriano Petrangelo did earlier in the day, Vardy sat down eight Huskies while allowing no earned runs and just one hit off of Saint Mary’s Joey Brown in the second inning.

Through three innings, Vardy and Huskies starter Keegan Gaskell appeared to be in a pitching duel, until McGill broke the game open in the fourth.

Redmen outfielder Rocky Hroch of Temecula, Cal. drove in the game’s first run with a single to right field, sparking momentum that allowed McGill to score at least one run in four straight innings.

Third-year shortstop Tyler Welence went 3-for-4 at the plate with an RBI for McGill. Meanwhile, Redmen third-baseman Robert Sedin of Sunnyvale, Cal., who finished 1-for-3, lead all players with 2 RBIs.

Gaskell took the loss for Saint Mary’s, surrendering nine hits and four earned runs.

Despite losing their first two games of the tourney, Saint Mary’s will look to turn it around against the also-winless Holland College Hurricanes, Saturday at 1 p.m. As for the Redmen, they resume play Saturday at 10 a.m. when they take on the Montreal Carabins at Trudeau Park.
