Port Hardy Cubs in a come-from-behind 14-6 win over the Port McNeill Rangers Saturday.

HYDE CREEK—Roger Yury doubled and scored the tying run, then homered an inning later to help propel the Port Hardy Cubs to a come-from-behind, 14-6 win over the Port McNeill Rangers Saturday in North Vancouver Island Baseball League action at the local ballpark.

The Rangers (1-2) got off to a quick start and led 6-2 through three innings. But Yury’s two-out double in the fourth drew the Cubs to 6-5 and he scored the tying run when Curtis Martyn followed with an RBI single.

Then, in the top of the fifth, Yury followed RBI singles by Tony Knighton and Kyle Dane with a three-run shot that gave Port Hardy (2-1) an 11-6 lead.

The Cubs put it away the next inning when the first three batters reached base and eventually came around to score to provide the final margin.

The Rangers needed just two at-bats to snare the early lead after starting pitcher Harold Hosken kept Port Hardy off the scoreboard in the top of the first.

Brandon Proc drew a leadoff walk in the bottom of the inning, stole second and raced home on Greg Johnson’s double.

Johnson added an RBI single in the second inning as the Rangers pushed their lead to 4-1.

The Cubs were scheduled to face the Hyde Creek Hillbillys in a return to the ballpark Sunday, but did not field a team. League director Hugh Connon said the Cubs may have to forfeit if the contest cannot be rescheduled.

League play resumes this weekend in Hyde Creek with Port Hardy playing Port McNeill again Saturday at 6 p.m. and Hyde Creek hosting the Rangers Sunday at 4 p.m.
