The Trail AM Ford Oriole's Kyle Mace kept a rally going in the last game of a four-game tilt against the Kelowna Jays

Kelowna Jays take series against Trail Orioles

The Trail Orioles split the opening double-header against the Kelowna Jays on Saturday, but the Jays took both on Sunday to win the series.

The Trail AM Ford Orioles couldn’t quite complete the comeback on Sunday as the home team dropped 3-of-4 on the weekend to open the season against the Kelowna Jays at Butler Park .

A two-run homerun by Tyler Thorson in the first inning was all the Jays would need in the first game as Trail managed just one hit against the Jays’ Zack Burton in a 2-1 loss on Saturday. However, the Orioles would rebound in the evening match of the double header scoring two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning for a 5-4 victory.

However, the Jays dominated Sunday’s matches with a 9-0 victory in the first game, and a 9-5 win in the second half of the double header.
