AA Orioles poised for playoffs

The AA Orioles greatly improved their playoff chances after sweeping a pair of games from Mt. Spokane on Saturday.

The Trail AA Orioles improved their playoff chances after sweeping a pair of games from Mt. Spokane 2 on Saturday in Spokane.

The O’s split a doubleheader with Asotin on Wednesday night dropping the opening match 13-0 before mounting a comeback in Game 2 for a 7-6 win. The win put the AA Orioles at 5-3 and trailing Colville, Asotin, and Mt. Spokane in the AA National League division standings, just out of the playoff picture, as the top three teams in the division move on to the district championship.

With the season essentially on the line, Trail won the opening match beating Mt. Spokane 5-1 and continued their great play with a 7-4 win in the nightcap. Trail now faces Rogers Monday at Butler in a doubleheader at 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. and wrap up their regular season with a pair of games against West Valley in Spokane Tuesday.
