Okotoks, AB... Late runs doomed the Okotoks Dawgs (13-14) as they fell 9-6 to the visiting Saskatoon Yellow Jackets (10-14).

 

Anthony Willeford (MacMurray College) couldn’t duplicate his near complete game like in his previous start and was knocked out of the game in the fifth inning after allowing three runs. The bullpen couldn’t hold the Dawgs’ lead and struggled late in the game.

 

Connor Crane (Lamar CC) was 2-5 with one run, three RBIs and two steals. Ross Barker (Western Texas College) made the most of his start in the DH position, going 3-4 with an RBI, while Mark Riendeau (Louisiana College) was 2-3.

 

The Dawgs were outhit 18-9, but the Dawgs’ four errors doomed them.
