Justin Pilgrim and Declan Murphy each had a pair of hits, with Murphy driving in three runs and Pilgrim bringing in a pair. Braeden Allemann also had two RBI’s, scoring a pair of runners with a double.

The Chiefs, now at 11-8 (won-lost) on the season, will travel to Kelowna this weekend for four games against the 6-12 Okanagan Athletics.
