The Okanagan College Coyotes have put themselves in a good spot at the Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC) playoff tournament.

In the opening game of the double-elimination tournament, the Coyotes beat the University of Fraser Valley Cascades 8-1.

They were powered by right fielder Nolan King, who went 2-3 with a three-run home run and four RBIs. Catcher Caleb Lumbard and second baseman Mike Duwyn also drove in two RBIs each. As a team, the Coyotes collected 12 hits in the game.

Coyotes ace Gavin Wuschke was great on the mound, throwing seven shutout innings, striking out six batters.

With the win, the Coyotes have Friday off and don’t play again until Saturday morning at 9 a.m. Pacific time. They will take on the University of Calgary Dinos. If they win, they advance to the semi-final. If they lose, they will play a second game on Saturday at 4 p.m.
