Lacombe Pee Wee AA Dodgers win two of three

The Lacombe Pee Wee AA Dodgers hosted teams in the final segment of round one provincial tiering baseball this past weekend.

The Lacombe Pee Wee AA Dodgers hosted teams from Red Deer, Innisfail, Olds and Camrose in the final segment of round one provincial tiering baseball this past weekend.

The Dodgers came away with a pair of wins and a one-run loss in their three games.

In game one, the Dodgers downed the Red Deer Braves 2 squad by a score of 22-6. Carter Amdam, Carter Chatwood, Ashton Finkbeiner and Zoë Lorenz-Boser pitched well for the Dodgers, while the hitting attack was led by Lorenz-Boser (triple, two singles, four runs) and Kai Ryden (two singles, three runs).

In their second game, the Dodgers suffered a narrow 17-16 loss to the Red Deer Braves 1 team despite strong pitching from Myles Pallister and Jacob Jensen. Pallister led the Dodgers at the plate with three singles.

In game three, the Dodgers defeated the Camrose Cougars 18-1 behind the pitching of Lewis Rice, Ryden, Lorenz-Boser, Zach Scholing and Joe Partington. The first six batters in the Dodgers line-up all had multi-hit games – Rice (two triples, single), Lorenz-Boser (over-the-fence home run, single), Ryden (inside-the-park home run, single), Pallister (triple, double, single), Partington (triple, double, single) and Graylin Giesbrecht (two singles). Zach Scholing chipped in with a double and two runs scored.

The Dodgers finished round one with a record of four wins and two losses, which will likely place them in the top division of round two tiering action, which begins on June 13th.  The Dodgers are competing in a six-team tournament in Spruce Grove on June 6th and 7th and are scheduled to play Spruce Grove, Fort Saskatchewan and Red Deer in round robin play.
