Jays take 3 of 4 from Bulldogs

Kelowna gets the better of Burnaby's senior baseball team in weekend series at Elks Stadium

Kelowna Jays right-hander Will Russell delivers to home plate against the Burnaby Bulldogs in baseball action Sunday at Elks Stadium.

The Kelowna Jays were in fine form on the weekend as they took three of four games from the Burnaby Bulldogs’ senior team in exhibition baseball action in Vernon and at Elks Stadium in Kelowna.

The Jays almost won all four but dropped Saturday’s opener 5-4 at Marshall Fields, leaving the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh inning. Taren Brad led the Jays offensively with three hits, two RBIs and two runs scored.

In Game 2 in Vernon, Kelowna rebounded with a 9-4 win. Bo Meiklejohn and reliever Sam Stelnick shared the pitching duties, while Josh Keithly sparked the offense with a two-run double.

Leadoff batter Nick Ono was on base all four times he came to the plate and stole two bases.

On Sunday in Kelowna, the Jays won the morning game 2-1. Jays ace Dylan Emmons scattered eight hits over seven innings for the win. Will Russell scored winning run in the sixth on a single by Ryan Green.

In the series finale, Russell allowed just four hits in six innings in a 3-1 Kelowna victory.

The Jays scored twice in the first on an RBI double by Brennan Hegel and sacrifice fly by Keithly.

Kelowna will visit the Trail Orioles for four games this weekend.
