Okanagan's senior and junior PBL teams get wins, bantams split at home

With back-to-back wins under their belts, the Okanagan Athletics will return to their home park this weekend for B.C. Premier Baseball League action.

The A’s will host the North Shore Twins for doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday at Elks Stadium.

The Twins are considered one of the teams to beat this season in the PBL.

Okanagan is coming off a pair of wins over the Reds in Coquitlam last weekend.

The teams played twice on Saturday, before Sunday’s games were rained out.

In the opener, Trevor Lofstrom tossed a four-hit shutout for his second win of the season as the A’s won 1-0. Chase Decosse scored the lone run on a error in the seventh inning.

In Game 2, Matt Brodt went 3-for-4 with four RBIs as the A’s rolled the Reds 16-6. Brodt also picked up the win, his second of the season, with five scoreless innings of relief.

Lofstrom added three RBIs as Okanagan evened its 2014 record at 6-6.

Junior A’s…

The Okanagan junior Athletics will be at Edith Gay Park this weekend for four BCJPBL games against the Abbotsford junior Cardinals. Saturday’s doubleheader starts at 2 p.m., with Sunday’s set for 11 a.m.

The junior A’s are 3-6 on the season after scoring a 10-9 win over the White Rock Tritons last Saturday in Surrey.

After giving up five runs in the sixth to tie the score at 9-9, the A’s won it in the top of seventh when Ben MacDonald singled home Sean Haylow with the winning run.

Hendrik Terwoord led the offence with two hits and three RBIs.

Bantam A’s…

The Okanagan A’s will head to Vancouver Island this weekend for four games in B.C. Bantam AAA Baseball League action. The A’s will face the Victoria Red team for two games on Saturday, followed by two against Victoria Black on Sunday.

The A’s (4-12) earned a split of four hames last weekend at home. On Saturday at Edith Gay, Okanagan opened up with a 6-5 win over Burnaby, before Burnaby responded with a 6-5 win over their own.

On Sunday, the A’s downed Vancouver 5-1, then watched the Mounties rebound for a 9-7 win.
