In Game 2, Pearce had two of Okanagan’s five hits in a 9-2 loss.

The series finale on Sunday saw the Jays score twice in the sixth inning to overtake the A’s for a 4-3 win.

The Athletics resume their homestand this weekend with a four-game series against the Langley Blaze.

The teams will meet for a pair of doubleheaders on Saturday and Sunday at Elks.
