The Okotoks Dawgs came away with four wins out of five over the past three days after splitting the doubleheader today with the Edmonton Prospects.

Today's first game of the doubleheader went to an extra inning with the Prospects edging out the Dawgs 5-4. Okotoks would regroup and pick up the victory in the second game with a 6-2 win.

Both games saw the Dawgs play visitors on their own field due to current complications with the field in Edmonton.

Zane Morrison took the start on the mound pitching in three and two third innings. Cade Hermann, Trent Warstler, Seth Thompson, and Aaron Hammer came in as relievers.
