The Okotoks Dawgs (11-4) take on the Moose Jaw Miller Express (10-8) in the finale of their two-game set tonight, June 23. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05pm.

The Dawgs extended their winning streak to four against Moose Jaw last night. CJ Lewington came on in relief for Jack Rupe in the third inning, pitching three shutout frames while Okotoks trailed by three. It’s a difficult feat to contain this offence, as we learned yesterday. The Dawgs exploded for nine runs in the eighth inning, and stole an 11-4 victory away from Moose Jaw.

A night ago, the Dawgs broke the ceiling on a few 2017 records. Nine runs was the most for a single inning this year, while 17 hits in a game also leads the way for Okotoks. Six Dawgs had multi-hit nights, tying a season-high. The red and white go for five-straight wins tonight, which would break their longest winning streak of the season.


Another day, another debut for our pitching staff. Justin Vernia from NCAA division one Gonzaga University will get the ball tonight against the Express. Vernia pitched to a 7-3 record with ‘Zaga, earning himself a 3.11 ERA over 14 starts. In 89 innings, Vernia allowed 31 earned runs, striking out 59 while walking just 20.

July 1st comes quickly, so make sure to grab your tickets to one of the biggest games this season. Live bands, fireworks, you name it, the Dawgs will have you set up for a memorable night as they take on the reigning WMBL champion, the Swift Current 57’s. The gates will open at 3pm!
