PORT ANGELES, Wash. — An error at the worst time proved costly for the Nanaimo NightOwls, leading to a 4-3 loss to open a short road series against the Port Angeles Lefties.

A ball dropped in the outfield in the bottom of the ninth provided the difference, instead of sending the game to extra innings.

The NightOwls could manage just seven hits and single runs in the first, sixth and eighth innings. Wylie Waters was 2-4 with two runs scored while lead off man Noah Hata drew two walks and scored one run.

Nathan Buchan, Caden Pearlman, Payton Robertson and Paul Montgomery were all effective on the mound for Nanaimo.

The NightOwls are in Port Angeles for a rare two-game series, that concludes Thursday with a 1:35pm matinee, celebrating the Fourth of July. The NightOwls then board the Coho Ferry back to the island to be ready for the weekend visit of the Wenatchee AppleSox — games Friday and Saturday evenings (6:35pm), and 1pm on Sunday.

Tickets are available online, at the gate, or get general admission vouchers at all Save On Foods locations in Nanaimo, Ladysmith and Parksville. The NightOwls are expecting more strong crowds for this weekend series after setting a franchise record on Monday with 3,127 in attendance for the Canada Day Classic doubleheader and fireworks show.

Next week, the games on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, ticketed fans will all get a chance to win highly valued concert tickets for the Taylor Swift Eras Tour, arriving in Vancouver in December.
