BRANDON, MB- The Sabre Dogs got their largest blowout of the year, beating the Wheat City Whiskey Jacks with the final score of 14-1.
The game went nearly perfect for the Dogs as George Loxtercamp got his first start as a Sabre Dog and pitched superbly. He went the distance and gave up just one run allowing no walks and six hits while fanning nine batters. The most batters he had to face in an inning was four, and he did that multiple times with a lot of three-up-three-down innings as well.
As for the hitting, they were able to produce a lot of offense, but they left a lot of runners stranded. That being said, they were fortunately facing a pitching staff with a collective ERA that is now over 6.00.
Phillip Childs led the game off and was explosive at the plate. There wasn’t anything the Whiskey Jacks could do to prevent Childs from hitting a ball in the gaps. He ended up with four hits on the day, finishing 4-for-5 with two RBI and two runs and a stolen base. Bo McClintock also finished the night with four hits. The first baseman finished 4-for-6 with the team’s season-high four RBI. McClintock goes into Thursday’s finale batting 6-for-9 in the series. Chauncey Callier produced great offensively too. Callier had a rough start to the series going just 1-for-7 on Monday and Tuesday, but he more than made up for it with three doubles in his four at bats with two RBI.
The Sabre Dogs will go for the series win Thursday night at 7:05 p.m.
