A close play at first base in the seventh inning of the North Shore Emeralds vs. Kamloops Sun Devils.

After only one day, there was enough action at the Grand Forks International (GFI) baseball tournament to fill a whole week.

The Lacey Saints won the opening game of the tournament with a 4-3 squeaker over the North West Honkers.

Game two saw an amazing comeback as the North Shore Emeralds fought back from being down 8-1 to win 9-8 in extra innings. The Emeralds scored their second run in the seventh inning to avoid a mercy rule loss.

In the third game, the Castlegar Warriors defeated the Grand Forks Babe Ruth team 2-1 in a five inning minor league game. The game was a fundraiser for the ALS society and saw all money from the gate and the 50/50 donated to ALS.

The final game of the first day saw the fan favourite Trail Orioles silence the West Coast Guns 17-7.

More action today (Thursday) with four games on tap as well as the opening ceremony at 7:30.

The championship final goes Monday at 2:30 p.m.

All games are at James Donaldson Field.
