The Manitoba Junior Baseball League regular season wrapped up on Monday and the Carillon Sultans finally know who their first round opponent will be in the post-season.

Carillon finished sixth in the regular season standings with an 8-12 record and will face the fifth place Pembina Valley Orioles (9-13) in the best of three quarter-finals, which will be played over three straight days this weekend.

The opening game of the series will be played Friday at 7:00 p.m. in Morden. Game two will be played Saturday at 6:00 p.m. in Ile des Chenes. If a deciding game is required, it will be played Sunday at 6:00 p.m. in Morden.

St. James, with their first place record of 20-4, have received a first round bye in the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Brandon Marlins, who finished third with an 11-6 record, will not be competing in the post-season.

Other opening round match-ups will have the Elmwood Giants (17-7) vs. the Altona Bisons (5-19); and the Interlake Blue Jays (13-11) vs. the St. Boniface Legionaires (6-17).

Pembina Valley won the season series over the Sultans, taking two of the three games they played.

Following this weekend’s opening round of the playoffs, the best of five semi-finals will begin on July 24.
