In Surrey, the A’s took three of four games from the White Rock Tritons to push their early-season record to 6-2.

In Saturday’s opener, Easton Forrest tossed a three-hit shutout for his second win as Okanagan blanked the Tritons 2-0.

Trevor Lofstrom led the offense with two RBIs.

White Rock bounced back in Game 2 with a 4-3 win.

On Sunday, the Athletics opened with a 12-4 victory. Matt Brodt had three hits and two RBIs, while Markus Glowacki drove in three runs. Starter Austin Brown earned the win going five innings.

In the series finale, Keaton Mandryk fired an eight-hitter for his second win of the spring as the Athletics posted a 4-2 win.

Sam Avila had two hits and two RBIs.

The Athletics are back on the road this weekend as they visit the Nanaimo Pirates for four games.

Next home action for Okanagan is May 2 and 3 against the Abbotsford Cardinals.
