A steely effort from the C’s bullpen and just enough offence provided the Vancouver Canadians with their first victory of 2019.
The Vancouver Canadians will have two members of its 2017 Northwest League championship team on its 2019 roster. One of them is lefthander Grayson Huffman
A couple of 2014 Vancouver Canadians were back together again briefly. 2013-2014 C’s left-hander Jairo Labourt and shortstop Franklin Barreto were reunited when the Oakland Athletics claimed Labourt earlier this spring but Labourt returned to the Detroit Tigers on a minor league deal.
The pitch count was high by having to answer way too many questions but Kyle Weatherly gutted it out in a complete-game effort for this edition of C’s Chat.
It was a busy year on the transactions front as a total of 51 players wore the uniform of the Northwest League champion Vancouver Canadians over the course of the 2017 season.
The Vancouver Canadians had a chance to bring home a 2-0 series lead back home but a bad first inning and a lack of hitting resulted in a 4-2 loss to the Eugene Emeralds in Game 2 of the Northwest League final at P.K. Park Sunday afternoon.
