The Okotoks Dawgs (8-4) take on the Brooks Bombers (4-7) in a Father’s Day matinee game today, June 18.
The Dawgs ended their two-game slide yesterday in a big way. Going up against the Edmonton Prospects and Noah Gapp, a pitcher who had allowed just two runs over 18 innings of work, Okotoks put up seven runs in the second inning en route to an 8-1 victory. John Hawk blasted a three-run home run to right field and Graham Brunner shut things down on the defensive side. The Dawgs Academy product threw six innings of one-run baseball.
In the only game between the Dawgs and the Bombers, it was Okotoks coming out with a 9-6 win in Brooks. Nick Vickers was stellar, fanning eight over five innings of work, allowing just one earned run. Kody Funderburk had a night to remember, blasting two home runs and driving in four. Jayse McLean had himself a multi-hit game as well, finishing the night 2-4.
In four games played, Matt Lloyd has sure seen different angles of the game. Since coming over from Indiana University, Lloyd has found himself at second base, third base, right field and designated hitter.
FATHER’S DAY GAME
There’s no reason not to be geared up for one of the most anticipated games of the season. Today against Brooks, the Dawgs will host their annual Father’s Day event.
