Despite a strong effort

AA Orioles falter in Wood Bat Classic

The Trail AA Orioles dropped all four games in the round robin, falling out of contention at the American Legion Wood Bat Classic.

The Trail AA Orioles played some exciting baseball but went winless at the Spokane American Legion Wood Bat Classic over the Independence Day weekend.

Close to 50 AA teams from Canada and the United States played over 200 games in the annual fourth of July weekend tournament in baseball parks around Spokane, Wash. and Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho.

And the competition was fierce as the U-17 AA Orioles dropped their opening match on Thursday 3-0 against Juanita out of Kirland, Wash. before getting edged out by the Bitterroot Bucs from Montana in a close 5-4 match.

The Bucs and Juanita would go on to finish with identical 3-1 records finishing in a three-way tie for first with the Mt. Spokane Wild in their division.

The Orioles dropped a 9-4 decision to the Wild on Friday and would go down to Les Johnson Battlecats 8-7 on Friday as well to finish out of contention.

Juanita would earn the number one seed and play East Valley on Saturday however scores were unavailable.
