Baseball: ‘AA’ Orioles drop rubber match

The Trail ‘AA’ Orioles dramatic sixth inning comeback came up short as the O’s dropped their third match 10-9 to Central Valley on Sunday

After splitting their first two games, the Trail ‘AA’ Orioles dramatic sixth inning comeback came up short as the O’s dropped the third match 10-9 to Central Valley on Sunday at Butler Park.

The ‘AA’ Orioles lost their first match to the Central Valley Bears out of Spokane 16-8 in what was scheduled to be a four-game series, but rain washed out the second half of Saturday’s double dip.

Trail bounced back in the second game Sunday, winning 16-2, on the strength of two doubles, a single, and six RBIs by Derek Green, and a towering two-run home run by Austin Tambellini.

In the rubber match, the O’s fought back from a 7-1 deficit in the fourth, scoring three in the bottom of the inning, a single in the fifth and plating four runs in the sixth to take a 9-7 lead. However, seven errors would eventually catch up with them as the Bears scored three runs in the top of the seventh to retake the lead and then get Trail out in the bottom half of the seventh for the 10-9 victory.

The ‘AA’ Orioles out-hit Central 16-7, but six unearned runs would prove the difference.

The exhibition games were the first action of the season in the Washington State American Legion baseball league for the Trail ‘AA’ team.

The ‘AA’ Orioles next home action will be on June 12-14 when they host the Trail Wood Bat Tournament at Butler Park.
