The Thompson Rivers University WolfPack baseball team seem to have adjusted to life in Ontario.

After dropping their first two games at the 2018 Canadian College Baseball Championships on Thursday (Oct 25), the Pack came out swinging to start Day two on Friday.

The Pack hammered the Ahuntsic Indiens of Quebec 18-1 in a game that went only five innings. TRU scored a run in the first.

After Ahuntsic scored in the bottom half of that inning, the rest of the scoring was done by Thompson Rivers. They had three in the second, six runs in the third and four runs in the fourth en route to the victory.

Joe Siniscalchi (Burnaby, BC) was the winning pitcher. He threw three innings giving up two hits, one run, walked one and struck out one.
He was replaced by Justin Hucul (Grande Prairie, AB).

The WolfPack had 10 hits in the contest
Liam Rihela (White Rock, BC) was named the TRU player of the game. He was two for two with three runs scored and three runs batted in. He was presented his award by WolfPack baseball alum Duaine Bowles: who is the host Humber College women’s fastball coach.

Josh Iannetti (Fort McMurray, AB) and Connor McKenzie (Kamloops, BC) each had three runs batted in while Liam Shibata (Abbotsford, BC) chipped in with two.

The WolfPack will be back on the field in playoff action at 4 pm EDT this afternoon against St. Clair Saints of Ontario. St. Clair beat Thompson Rivers Friday (Oct 25) 1-0.
