The Okotoks Dawgs came out flat tonight against the Medicine Hat Mavericks. The Dawgs came into tonight on a three- game winning streak, but the three off days in between games seemed to disrupt the timing and rhythm they were starting to build on offence and defense this past week. The Dawgs ended up losing 9-1 to start a three-game home stand.
Ryan Rogers started the game; he is normally Mr. Consistent on the mound, but not tonight. Rogers struggled with command as he failed to finish the second inning. Trent Wilson was first out of the bullpen, and did a great job of stalling the Mavericks offence for 5 and 1/3 innings. He only surrendered one earned run while striking out five. He did all he could to keep his team in the ballgame.
There was not much to talk about offensively for the Dawgs tonight. Stetson Olson from Washington State University tried to energize the crowd and his teammates as he launched a solo blast in the sixth inning. Aside from that, the Dawgs were unable to sustain any rallies, only registering five hits and one walk.
It was great to see injured center fielder, Zac Asman run around tonight. Zac has been recovering from a rolled ankle for a few weeks now. Zac came in late in the game and lined a ball to rightfield for a single then went out to play centerfield for the final inning.
Tomorrow, June 22nd the Yorkton Cardinals will roll into town for a two-game set. Yorkton is 4-6 in their last 10 games. Connor Russell from Victoria B.C. takes the mound for the Dawgs. First pitch is at 7:05 pm as it is “Pablo Forno Cinco De Mayo Mexican Day” at Seaman Stadium. See you there!
