The Victoria HarbourCats continue to win, now extending their streak to a franchise record 12 consecutive games, but tonight’s win against the Kitsap BlueJackets didn’t come easy. They won 6-5.

The HarbourCats are now 12-3. They started the season 0-3.

Pitcher Austin Dondanville started for the HarbourCats, going 6 and 1/3 innings having given up no hits. He surrendered two in the seventh inning.
