Baseball: Trail AA Orioles sweep Mt. Spokane

The Trail AA Orioles control their playoff destiny.

The Trail AA Orioles improved their playoff chances after sweeping a pair of games from Mt. Spokane on Saturday in Washington State American Legion baseball.

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 victory in the nightcap. With a 5-3 record going into the doubleheader and trailing Colville, Asotin, and Mt. Spokane in the AA National League division standings, the wins against Mt. Spokane were crucial.

The Orioles now sit in second spot in their division at 7-3 with four games remaining, and trail Colville, at 10-2, by two games.

On Wednesday, the O’s split a doubleheader with Asotin dropping the opening match 13-0 before mounting a comeback in Game 2 for a 7-6 win.

With the top three teams in the division moving onto the district playoffs, the victories put the AA Orioles in a good position to make the post-season.

A win in one of their remaining four games could clinch a berth.

Trail played Rogers Monday at Butler Park but the scores were unavailable at press time.

The O’s will wrap up their regular season with a pair of games against West Valley in Spokane today.
