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.
