After 6 years Penticton has 18U AAA baseball back! The 18U Tigers have started the season with a hot 6W - 2L start on the road. After opening with 2 losses to the North Fraser Nationals the Tigers have reeled off 6 straight wins, including double header sweeps against the Cloverdale Spurs, Chilliwack Cougars, and the Ridge Meadows Royals.
This weekends games featured some hot hitting, tight defence and timely pitching. The highlight was a come-from-behind 7th inning rally in Game 2 in Chilliwack. The Tigers found themselves down 7-4 going into the last inning and strung some key hits together to load the bases with 1 out. Right-fielder and clean up hitter, Matt Olsen, then delivered a go ahead grand slam shot to take an 8-7 lead! They added 2 more runs and closed out a 10-7 thriller!
The 18U AAA Tigers have their home opener at Carmi Field this weekend with a Saturday double-header against Chilliwack at 1pm and a Sunday double-header against the Kelowna Sun-Devils at 12 noon. Come cheer on the team and watch some AAA Baseball in Penticton again!
