The Okotoks Dawgs made easy work of the Edmonton Prospects tonight (June 4) remaining undefeated in the first seven games of the season with the 9-1 win.

Gavin Wuschke picked up the win for the Dawgs, starting on the mound for Okotoks and getting two strikeouts in two innings. Adam Beamin and Ashton Luera would each earn three strikeouts. Luera's strikes all came in the seventh inning.

The first inning would finish scoreless, but the Prospects got on the board first at the top of the second inning. Jordan Singleton, the Prospects' designated hitter, was the first at-bat and made no mistake, hitting a solo home run on the sixth pitch that came his way. That would be the only run the Prospects would get across home plate for the rest of the game.

Okotoks answered back in the bottom of the second when Kadyn Williams earned an RBI after he hit a single to left field scoring Barry Eiseman across home plate.

The Dawgs completely took over in the bottom of the third scoring six runs in the inning. With bases loaded with Ricky Sanchez on third, Josh DeGroot on second, and Connor Crowson on first, Jacob Wrubleski's hit would turn into an error for the Prospects scoring Sanchez and DeGroot in for runs, giving the Dawgs their first lead of the game.

Jason Arriola would step up to bat shortly after earning a walk to first base, once again loading the bases with Wrubleski and Crowson already on base. Kadyn Williams got hit by a pitch with the next up at bat, scoring Crowson in for a 5-1 lead.

Lou Anderson was the next up hitting a double to left field and scoring both Wrubleski and Arriola in for runs putting the Dawgs up 7-1.

In the fourth inning, Crowson scored his third home run of the season adding to the already big lead making it 8-1.

Sanchez would score the Dawgs' final run in the bottom of the eighth after the Prospects threw a wild pitch when Crowson was up to bat and Sanchez used his speed to cash in the final run of the game.

The Dawgs will head to Brooks tomorrow when they take on the Bombers for their fourth meeting of the season. Bombers are coming off of a game that would be a pitcher's nightmare losing 31-26. Your eyes aren't tricking you; 57 runs were scored between Brooks and the Lethbridge Bulls.

The first pitch will be at 7:05 with Brooks hosting the Dawgs at Elks Field tomorrow.
