Pee Wee AA Dodgers land silver at Spruce Grove tournament

The Lacombe Pee Wee AA Dodgers won three of four games to place second at the Spruce Grove baseball tournament on the weekend.

The Lacombe Pee Wee AA Dodgers won three of four games to place second at the Spruce Grove baseball tournament on the weekend.

The opening contest against Spruce Grove was scoreless until the bottom of the fifth inning when Zoë Lorenz-Boser walked, stole second and third and scored on a wild pitch.

The Dodgers broke the game open with six more runs in the bottom of the sixth using three consecutive walks (Jacob Jensen, Ashton Finkbeiner and Tennyson Blackmore) followed by three consecutive singles (Zach Scholing, Myles Pallister and Lewis Rice).

Carter Amdam pitched four scoreless innings to pick up the win on the mound for the Dodgers. Myles Pallister and Jacob Jensen combined to pitch three scoreless innings in relief to preserve a 7-0 win for the Dodgers.

In Game 2, the Dodgers defeated Fort Saskatchewan 15-3 with the 10-run mercy rule applied after five innings. Lorenz-Boser was the winning pitcher with Rice working the final inning on the mound.

The Dodger bats came alive during this game, with the hitting attack being led by Rice (three singles), Lorenz-Boser (over-the-fence home run and a double), Pallister (triple and single), Scholing (two singles), Amdam (two singles), Joe Partington (an inside-the-park home run) and Graylin Giesbrecht (an inside-the-park home run).

The Dodgers completed round-robin play with a 21-9 win in five innings over the Red Deer Braves. Blackmore, Finkbeiner and Kai Ryden handled pitching duties well for the Dodgers with hitting support from Pallister (double and single), Rice (two singles), Lorenz-Boser (two singles), Joe Partington (two singles) and Jensen (two singles).

In the championship final, the Dodgers ran into a hard-throwing pitcher and some timely opposite-field hitting by their opponents in a 16-6 loss to Provost.

Pallister and Jensen pitched well for the Dodgers in the seven-inning game, with credit going to Provost which was the best hitting team Lacombe has faced so far this season.

At the plate, the Dodgers were led by Lorenz-Boser (double and single), Pallister (double and single) and Partington (two singles). Amdam and Scholing chipped in with a single apiece. The two teams were clearly the top teams in the tournament and were presented with well-deserved medals at the conclusion of the final game.

The Dodgers take to the diamond this weekend in Baseball Alberta Round two tiering action with games in Lacombe on June 13th (9 a.m. and 6 p.m.) and June 14th in Innisfail (3 p.m.). Additional games are scheduled in Strathmore the weekend of June 27th-28th. Round two opponents include Okotoks, Springbank, Calgary, Strathmore, Innisfail, Red Deer #1, and Camrose.
