Michael Duncan went 2 for 4 against Port Coquitlam and was also a defensive standout at first. Dunc made several good plays by stretching to throws and a great stab on a line drive late in the game. Good job Mike!!

Season over; Jaxx Lose to Blue Jays in Finals 3-1 The Ridge Meadows Diamond Jaxx season came to an end on Sunday afternoon where they picked up a second place finish. The Jaxx fell to their rivals from Port Coquitlam 3-1 in the championship game. This was the 4th meeting between these two teams this year, with PoCo taking the season series 2-1-1. The Jaxx had runners on all game long but could not cash any in. The score could have easily been 10-3 for the Jaxx but because of some strong Blue Jay pitching and defense the Jaxx came up just short.
