Braves notch three wins over the weekend in Red Deer

Red Deer’s bantam AAA Servus Credit Union weren’t very good hosts this past weekend, taking three of the four games they played down at Great Chief Park.

The Braves opened their four-game weekend Saturday morning with a 14-11 win over the Edmonton Cardinals.

Starting pitcher Joel Mazurkewich gave up two runs on two hits and struck out three over three innings of work for the win and he also helped out his own cause offensively, banging out three singles in four plate appearances, scoring once.

Brendan Baker went two for five at the plate, a single and a double, and was credited with two runs batted in.

Levi Moon also had two RBI’s after a two for four performance at the dish, while Tyler Galloway knocked in one run for Red Deer.

Saturday afternoon saw the Braves lose their only game of the weekend, 14-6 to Fort McMurray.

Mazurkewich again held the hot bat, going for three for four at the plate with two singles, one double, one RBI and two runs scored.

Riley Guntrip also went three for four and banged home a run while Galloway picked up a two RBI single.

Galloway, Ryan Klinck and Justin Van Tetering shared the pitching duties for Red Deer, with Galloway eventually taking the loss.

Sunday morning, the Braves were back at it, getting a bit of revenge for the previous day’s loss with a 14-5 win over Fort McMurray.

Mitch Vanson, who pitched the final innings of the game for Red Deer, was perfect in his relief appearance, throwing three innings of no hit ball to get the win.

Nik Fischer went three for four at the plate, picking up one RBI, while Guntrip was two for five with two runs batted in.

Klinck had three singles in four plate appearances and Moon drove in one run with an RBI triple.

In Sunday’s finale, Guntrip got the start on the mound, allowing two runs on one hit to go along with three strikeouts over four innings of work, as the Braves dumped Sherwood Park Green 13-3.

Mazurkewich was perfect at the plate, going three for three with two singles, one triple, two RBI’s and one run scored, while Fischer also had a three for three performance, knocking in two runs for the Braves while crossing home plate himself three times.

Galloway picked up a pair of triples and one RBI, while Baker and Jesse Muirhead each had triples.
