Friday June 30, 2017

The Dawgs propelled themselves into a tie for Western division supremacy with a 13-8 victory over the Bulls last night at Spitz Stadium. A five-run sixth inning, capped off by a Matt Lloyd double to left field put Okotoks in the driver's seat the rest of the way. The base-knock gave Lloyd his third straight multi-hit game, while Jayse McLean’s fourth home run of the season put the contest out of reach. All nine starters chipped in with at least one hit, helping the Dawgs hold off a late surge from Lethbridge.


Over the course of the campaign, McLean has registered four home runs to his name -- all of them coming against Lethbridge at Spitz Stadium. He hit three to right field June 14, while going opposite field with his blast a night ago.

For the first time this season, all nine batters registered a hit a night ago in Lethbridge. Leading the pack was Matt Lloyd with three hits and three RBI, bolstering his average to .373. Cameron Campbell also recorded three hits while three other Dawgs had two.

Justin Vernia from Gonzaga University gets the ball in tonight’s battle for sole possession of first place in the Western division. In 2017 with Gonzaga, Vernia earned WCC All-Academic Honours while going 7-3 with a 3.11 ERA in 89 innings pitched.

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!


Matt Lloyd: 22-59, 13 R, 5 2B, 2 HR, 14 RBI, .373 AVG

Zach Hanna (R): 23-71, 8 R, 7 2B, 14 RBI, .324 AVG

The Dawgs are on the brink of their longest homestand of the season. They have five games at Seaman Stadium following tonight against Lethbridge, stretching from June 30 to July 6.
