KAMLOOPS — The Kamloops NorthPaws are Vancouver Island bound as they look to right the ship after suffering another sweep. The Edmonton Riverhawks earned a trio of wins over Kamloops at Dearborn Ford Field at Norbrock Stadium to push the Kamloops losing streak to 13 straight. 
The Nanaimo NightOwls sit fifth in the North Division standing at 7-10 as they welcome the NorthPaws to town for a three game set beginning on Tuesday. 
It was a bend but don’t break attitude from the Kamloops NorthPaws pitching staff on Friday night as they would allow 15 hits to the Edmonton Riverhawks in the ballgame, but give up only 4 runs in a 4-2 loss. 
Josh Berenbaum got the start but was forced to leave with an apparent upper-body injury in the third inning after giving up 2ER, 5H, 4K. Casper Rammeloo was forced into action providing 3.0 IP, 4H, 0R baseball. 
The Riverhawks would strike first in the second inning on a Kaden Zarowny RBI single. Kamloops responded in the bottom half as Jacob Schlesselman brought home Chris Catalano on a single. 
Edmonton would then take the lead for good in the top of the third inning as a Trent Leniham double scored Jakob Poturnak. 
With the game at 4-1 in the ninth, Kamloops local Matt MacDonald hit a solo-shot to right, trimming the lead to 4-2 but that is as close as Kamloops would come, dropping their 11th straight decision. 
Tate Dearing was credited with the win for the Riverhawks, 6IP, 4H, 1ER, 1K. Hayden Morrison earned the save. 
The losing streak looked primed to come to an end on Saturday evening in Kamloops, but five unanswered runs from the Riverhawks stole the win 6-5 in 10 innings. 
Kamloops would score first as the ‘Paws would load the bases with nobody out but bring across just a single run on a Chris Catalano double play to second. After the tying run came across in the top of the third, Kamloops put together a 2-out rally with Jacob French bringing home one and then Jaden Bitter doubling to left field to bring home two more. 
Kamloops would add an extra run in the sixth inning on a Matthew Olivares RBI sac-fly to make it 5-1. 
The Edmonton comeback would begin in the 8th inning with three runs scoring all with 2-outs to trim the lead to 5-4. 
Due to a lack of arms available, Kamloops went to catcher Jerry Nix to pitch the ninth, but a two-out double from Same Kane brought home the tying run. A diving play from Tyler Glowacki in right prevented the go ahead run from scoring on a Russell Young liner one batter later. 
The winning run would score on a passed ball in the 10th, before the Paws went 1-2-3 in the bottom half.
Dominic Giustino suffered the loss. 
The final game of the weekend set saw the return of former NorthPaws pitcher Vic Domingo as he got the start for Edmonton and spun a gem on the mound. 
Domingo pitched 7IP, 4H, 0ER, 9K and at one point between the 2nd and 7th innings, retired 15 consecutive Kamloops NorthPaws hitters as the Riverhawks swept the ‘Paws with a 7-2 win. 
The Riverhawks would tally 14 hits against the Kamloops pitching staff which saw Cade Johnson, Manato Teteno, Chase Taylor and Manny Recchi all toe the rubber. 
Six different Edmonton players would be credited with an RBI in the win, with Bryce McFeely leading the charge on a 3-5 day with two doubles.
