The Okotoks Dawgs (7-4) take on the Edmonton Prospects (8-3) in game three of their season matchup tonight, June 17.
The Dawgs look to end their two-game slide after being swept by the Medicine Hat Mavericks in their home-and-home series. Okotoks jumped out to an early 2-0 lead a night ago, only to have their edge washed away with a two-hour rain delay. When play recommenced, it was all Mavericks, who took home a 14-7 victory in a game that ended past midnight.
Okotoks took their first matchup against the Prospects in the friendly confines of Seaman Stadium, June 4. Greg Cullen, Jayse McLean and Joel Brophy each had three base-knocks apiece in a dominant, 14-hit performance. In game two in hostile territory, things changed drastically. Edmonton quickly led 7-1 and ran away with an 11-2 win.
A CASE OF THE BRUNS
Dawgs Academy product Graham Brunner takes to the mound tonight.
In his collegiate debut with the Dawgs, Brunner put together a quality outing, throwing five and two-third innings, striking out three and allowing just one earned run in Fort McMurray. The rookie allowed just three hits against -- all singles.
SWINGING THE LUMBER
As it stands right now, the Dawgs are in the top five of the WMBL in hits (4th), doubles (4th), triples (1st), RBI (3rd).
FATHER’S DAY GAME
There’s no reason not to be geared up for one of the most anticipated games of the season. Tomorrow against Brooks, the Dawgs will host their annual Father’s Day event.
The Man Van will be parked outside Seaman Stadium gates for the entirety of the contest, helping Okotokians get screened for prostate cancer.
Clayton Keyes: Drafted in the 15th round of the MLB Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks -- makes his second start with the collegiate program. Number 22 finished with a double and an RBI last night.
Matt Lloyd: 5-13, 2 R, HR, 4 RBI, .385 AVG [On a three-game hitting streak]
Zach Hanna (R): 8-27, 2 R, 3 2B, 5 RBI, .296 AVG [Currently on a three-game hitting streak]
The (4-7) Brooks Bombers come to town for the Father’s Day matinee tomorrow before the Dawgs head out for a two-game series in Edmonton Monday, June 19-20.
