The Giants loomed large over the Bulls during the first game of a four-game set.
The Lethbridge Bulls were toppled 14-1 by the Fort McMurray Giants during Western Major Baseball League action Friday night in Fort McMurray.
The loss puts the Bulls at 8-3 on the season as the teams head back to the diamond today for a doubleheader.
On Friday, Lethbridge was lit up early and often as the Giants jumped all over the visitors with seven runs in the first inning for a lead that was never threatened the rest of the way.
Fort McMurray added three more runs in the third inning and four more in the fifth en route to the convincing win as the Giants outhit the Bulls 12-5.
The Bulls one run came in the sixth inning when Jesse Hillyard hit a one-out triple and scored on a Brock Frentzel single.
Frentzel had two of Lethbridge’s five hits, going 2-for-3 on the night. His RBI was his eighth of the season.
Bulls starter starter Trace Francis was tagged for the loss, going one-third of an inning and giving up seven runs on three hits, walking six and striking out one.
The Bulls look for a little payback against the Giants today and will have two chances to do it in a doubleheader that starts at 2:05 p.m. with the second game slated for 7:35 p.m.
