Prospects Go 1-2 Down In Okotoks
The Prospects Senior Academy dropped the series to southern rival Okotoks Dawgs over the weekend. They split the doubleheader on Saturday, but lost the series clinching game on Sunday.
In the opening game of the weekend the Prospects fell by a score of 8-5. Finn Duffield started on the mound and went 4 innings, giving up 8 runs (6 earned) on 7 hits while walking 4. Graham Brunner was very strong out of the pen tossing 2 shutout innings. The offense was led by Jaret Semeniuk who was 1-3 with a double and 3 RBI. Tauren Langley was 2-3 with an RBI. Tylor Jans was 1-3 with a double and an RBI.

On Sunday, Okotoks jumped out to a 4-0 lead right off the bat and went on to win 6-0. The Prospects had baserunners but weren't able to really muster anything on offense despite the bullpen doing a good jop keeping the score reachable. Zaine Foth-Thomas got the start on the mound and gave up 4 runs on 2 walks and 4 hits. Zach Froment tossed 3 solid innings out of the pen giving up 2 runs while striking out 3. Ross Supruniuk was dominant out of the bullpen, throwing 4 shutout innings allowing just two baserunners. Tylor Jans threw a clean inning as well.
The Prospects are back in action this weekend down in Lethbridge for a four game set as they take on PBA JV.
