Opening day for the 2017 summer season had some ups and downs for Riverside but overall, the day went pretty well as the Rams split their doubleheader with visiting Selkirk. Riverside threw four pitchers and played solid defense in game 1 winning 10-7. Joe Ueno blasted a bases loaded triple & Kooper Bower had 2 hits for the Rams.
Selkirk scored 4 in the 3rd inning and 5 runs in the 7th to take Game 2 by a score or 13-6. Five more Rams threw for Riverside but some shoddy defense by the home team helped Selkirk to the win. Jack Ewart had a pair of hits and Matt Vonasek had an single on the day.
