Braves land two wins over the weekend

Two more wins for Red Deer`s bantam AAA Servus Credit Union Braves this past weekend.

The Braves were at Sherwood Park and opened the Saturday twin bill with an 11-2 win over the St. Albert Cardinals.

Starting pitcher Levi Moon picked up the win, giving up just one run on three hits while striking out six over four innings of work, and helped out his own cause at the plate, chipping in with two hits, one run batted in and he also scored a run.

Riley Guntrip led all batters with a two for four performance at the plate (one double and one single) while knocking in a couple of runs, with Mitch Vanson contributing with a three RBI double.

In Saturday`s late game, the Braves showed no mercy in a 28-4 win over Sherwood Park Green.

Nik Fischer got the start on the mound for Red Deer, giving up two hits, one run and striking out five over three innings pitched.

Guntrip once again held the hot bat, going five for five in the batter’s box, banging out three doubles, two singles, five RBI`s and three runs scored.

Ryan Klinch went three for five at the plate, with three singles and four runs scored, while Moon got on the scoresheet with three singles, two RBI`s and one run scored.

The Braves get back at it tomorrow (Thursday), heading to St. Albert for the annual Early Bird Tournament.

Elsewhere, the Lacombe bantam AA Dodgers were in Innisfail for a tiering round and they won all three games they played, 6-5 over Red Deer, 22-2 over Okotoks and 17-2 over Innisfail.

Midget AAA action saw Red Deer`s Carstar Braves sweep a three game set with Fort McMurray while the Mosquito AA Dick`s Auto Braves picked up two wins in Lacombe, 18-5 over the host Dodgers and 13-11 over Okotoks.
