After opening the Manitoba Junior Baseball League season with four straight games on the road, the Carillon Sultans finally got in some home games this past weekend after three previous attempts were postponed.

Friday night in Steinbach, the Sultans dropped a 5-2 decision to the Elmwood Giants, then Sunday afternoon at Ile des Chenes continued their home stand as they split a doubleheader against the Pembina Valley Orioles.

The Sultans won the opener 5-3 over the Orioles as Nik Kauenhofen hurled a complete game victory. But the Orioles stormed back to win game two by a 12-2 count.

Carillon's record now stands at 2-5 for the season, which is sixth in the eight-team loop. St. James leads with a perfect 8-0 record, followed by Brandon at 4-1, then Elwmood 6-3 and Pembina Valley fourth at 6-4.

The Sultans return to action this Wednesday in Steinbach as they entertain the Interlake Blue Jays at 7:00 p.m. at A.D. Penner Park.
