YORKTON - It would be hard to script a better opening weekend for the Yorkton U18 Expos.
The team hosted the North Battleford Beavers for a doubleheader at Jubilee Park and the home team plated 23 runs over two games.
In one game the Expos scored eight third inning runs on their way to a 15-2 victory. The big inning came via three walks, three singles, a defensive error and a ground out.
The other contest was also a lopsided affair as Yorkton won 8-1.
A singe by Brandon Spilchen in the first inning scored an Expos run, and the rout was on, including a four-run sixth.
Ty Ulmer was on the mound for the win, surrendering only the one run, while scattering five hits and striking out 10 over seven innings.
