The Midget Royals hardball squad opened their 2015 regular season with a four-game set against two teams from the Kelowna area over the weekend.

On Saturday, the club squared off against the Kelowna Cubs, a team that is new to the Midget AAA division.

In the first game of the season, Chris Bailey took the mound for the Royals, and helped lead the team to a 7-4 win.  Trevor Reed came in from the bullpen to record the save.

The offence was led by Domenic Baptista, who went two-for-four with a pair of doubles.

The second game was a 6-5 Royals victory. Trevor Biggin got the start and picked up the win, while Seth Injates recorded the save.

Tristan Reed and Kyron Smith reached base a combined six times in the game, helping to set the table for the middle of the order.

On Sunday, the team made the short trip to West Kelowna to take on the Diamondbacks. Injates got the ball in game one and threw a complete game shutout in a 7-0 win. He recorded seven strikeouts while keeping the West Kelowna batters at bay.

Reed had another solid game at the plate, going 2-2 with two walks, one hit by pitch, two stolen bases and a run scored.

In the final game of the weekend, the Royals’ bats exploded for 15 runs on 21 hits to secure a 15-4 victory and a perfect 4-0 weekend.

Baptista went 3-4 with a triple and 4 RBI’s, while Trevor Biggin went 2-2 with 2 HBP, an RBI, and a double.
