The Western Canadian Baseball Leauge leading Okotoks Dawgs remain perfect through four games inside their six-game road swing in Saskatchewan with an 18-2 rout of the last-placed Yorkton Cardinals.
The Dawgs (32-10) picked up their ninth win when scoring double-digit this season and improve their win streak to five overall.
Crowder College hurler Graham Brunner started the Dawgs’ second-half of their six-game Saskatchewan road swing in Yorkton.
The Dawgs Academy alumni dealt through six innings, allowing two runs on just four hits while striking six to improve his record to 3-1 during his fifth start.
UBC infielder Jaxon Valcke, University of Nebraska short-stop Shay Schanaman and future Oregon State outfielder Jacob Melton all went yard during the blowout while six different Okotoks players contributed RBIs during the pounding.
Valcke lead the charge on offence with five RBIs on the night while Husker product Schanaman and Bellevue University DH Riley Baasch had three each.
The Okotoks offence took over the series-opener early with a 4-0 lead in the opening inning.
Yorkton sent a response back when they loaded the bases in the first but only got one run across.
The Dawgs found their relentless offence and continued to make it rain on the Cardinals with nine unanswered runs including a five-run second inning.
Yorkton loaded the bases on Brunner for a second time but again, were only able to bring a single run across in the sixth.
Okotoks piled on five more runs after that to conclude the rout of the Cardinals.
The series carries over tomorrow night with the first pitch set for 7:05 p.m. in Yorkton.
