The Trail Orioles single-A baseball team dropped a pair of close games on the weekend at Butler Park.

The Trail Orioles single-A baseball team dropped a pair of close games on the weekend at Butler Park.

The Orioles played a double-header against Mead on Saturday looking for its first victory of the season. However, a 17-11 loss in the opener followed by a 5-4 late-inning victory in the second half of the double header leaves the O’s with an 0-4 record in the ‘A’ Washington State American Legion baseball league.

In the first match Trail rebounded from a 7-1 deficit, scoring eight runs in the third inning to go ahead 9-7. However, Mead struck back in the fifth with six runs of their own to take a 13-10 lead before closing it out with four runs in the sixth.

In the second match, the Spokane team went up 4-1 in the third inning. Yet, the persistent Orioles would chip away at the lead, scoring one in the fourth  and tying it at four in the sixth with a two run inning. Unfortunately, Mead would score one more in the bottom of six to eke out the 5-4 victory. See O’s, Page 10

It was a good effort by the home team against second place Mead, which is 6-2 in the WSALB North division.

The ‘A’ Orioles next games go Sunday at Butler Park against Mt. Spokane at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
