A's Season Comes To An End

Rocked for six earned runs in the first inning, the Okanagan Athletics couldn’t recover and had their season come to an abrupt end on Sunday at Elks Stadium.

Six straight hits, including two doubles, off rookie starter Easton Forrest led to the six runs by the visiting Vancouver Cannons, who went on to a 9-3 victory. The win also earned the Cannons a berth in the B.C. Premier (Midget) Baseball League final-five provincial championship tournament beginning on Friday in Whalley.

The Cannons, fifth place finishers in the regular season with a 26-22 record, opened the best-of-three preliminary league series with a 4-1 win on Saturday. But they were stymied 9-3 by the fourth-place A’s (28-20) in the second game on Sunday morning, setting the stage for the deciding set-to in the afternoon.
