YORKTON - The Parkland 18U AAA Expos hosted a doubleheader Sunday, splitting the action against the East Central Red Sox.

In the opener Chaz Jaeb, who was credited with the win, combined with Landon Burkell for a 5-0 win.

Jaeb went six and a third inning, allowing five hits and striking out a quintet.

Burkell finished the game inducing a double play ball to end the contest.

Ashtyn Shields went 2-for-4 at the plate to lead the Expos, as well as stealing two of the nine bases the team stole in the game.

The second game of the doubleheader was less kind to the Expos who fell 9-4.

The Expos led 2-1 after the first inning, and were tied 4-4 after three, but then the Red Sox scored two unanswered in the fifth, added one in the sixth and two in the seventh for the win.

Burkell was tagged with the loss for the Expos going two and two-thirds innings allowing three runs on one hit and striking out a pair.

Shields again went 2-for-4 to lead the Expos at the plate.

The Expos travel Tuesday to face the Athletics, then host the Wolfpack at Pirie Field in Melville Thursday and the Broncos in Yorkton at Jubilee Park Saturday at 12 noon.
