Twins get best of Athletics

North Shore takes three of four from Okanagan in B.C. Premier Baseball League action

For the the first time this season, the Okanagan Athletics came out on the short end of a B.C. Premier Baseball League series.

In North Vancouver over the weekend, the North Shore Twins took three of four games from the A’s.

On Saturday, Okanagan started on the right foot with a 7-5 win.

Easton Forrest earned his fifth victory of the season on the mound, while Trevor Lofstrom and McCoy Pearce had two RBIs each. Chase Decosse had three hits and scored twice.

But from there, it was all Twins who took Game 2 of the series by a 14-2 score.

North Shore scored seven times in the first inning, then rode the three-hit pitching of Matteo Vincelli and Evan Lawrence to victory.

On Sunday, the A’s managed just five hits and failed to score a run in losing both ends of the doubleheader 8-0 and 4-0. Markus Glowacki and Matt Brodt had two hits each on the day.

Meanwhile, A’s catcher Chase Decosse continues to be one of the league’s most dangerous base runners with 17 steals and 26 runs scored in just 20 games.

The Athletics (13-7) will be in Parksville this weekend for four games with the Royals (2-9).

Okanagan’s next home action is June 6 and 7 at Elks Stadium against the Victoria Eagles.
