After winning nine of their first dozen games, the Fraser Valley Chiefs have dropped five of their past seven B.C. Premier Baseball League games.

The latest setback was a 15-13 loss to the Coquitlam Reds in Coquitlam Tuesday night.

Five of the 15 Reds runs were unearned, and was the difference in a game where the Chiefs outhit the home side 12-10. Trailing 8-4 after three innings, the Chiefs took the lead by scoring six times in the fourth, only to give up six to Coquitlam in the bottom half of the inning and fall behind 13-10.

Jovan Ewusie collected three hits, including a pair of doubles, and scored two runs for Fraser Valley. Justin Pilgrim and Declan Murphy each had a pair of hits, with Murphy driving in three runs and Pilgrim bringing in a pair. Braeden Allemann also had two RBI’s, scoring a pair of runners with a double.

The Chiefs, now at 11-8 (won-lost) on the season, will travel to Kelowna this weekend for four games against the 6-12 Okanagan Athletics.
