A mostly positive weekend on their home turf has the Okanagan College Coyotes playing
.500 baseball through the first three weeks of the 2015 season.
Geoff White’s ‘Yotes won three of four games at Elks Stadium to push their Canadian College Baseball Conference record to 6-6.
“We are happy to win the weekend, but we still have lots of areas to improve on and continue to build on consistency on all aspects,” said White, the OC coach. “It is definitely a step in the right direction.
“We have seen all four teams now so we have an idea of a game plan going into weekends and seeing particular match ups.”
OC opened up on Friday night in Kelowna with an 11-3 victory over the Calgary Dinos.
Braden Heyland had two hits and three RBIs to lead the offense, while Cole Parusinni scattered six hits over seven innings for his second win of the spring.
On Saturday afternoon, the Coyotes completed the two-game sweep of the Dinos with a 5-1 win.
Brandon Becking tossed a five-hitter for his first win, while Brennan Reidy and Brandon Graham had two hits apiece to pace the offense. Graham also scored three times.
On Saturday night, OC met the VIBI Mariners for the first time this season and dropped a 10-6 decision.
Logan Wedgewood and Ryo Shishido each had a pair of hits in the loss.
On Sunday, the Coyotes returned the favour with a 9-7 victory over the Mariners.
Reidy led the way with three RBIs, Tony Rattigan drove in a pair, while Joey Gladman had three hits and scored twice.
On the hill, Joel Lamont earned his team-leading third win of the season go9ing 5 2/3 innings.
The Coyotes hit the road this weekend as they travel to Nanaimo for four games against the VIBI Mariners.
