By Lethbridge Herald on June 8, 2015.
Three days after a shocking one-game winless slump, the Lethbridge Bulls are back where they belong atop the Western Major Baseball League standings.
The Bulls have just one loss in their eight games this season, and since that Thursday night beatdown by the Edmonton Prospects, the Bulls have taken three straight.
They started with a 6-4 win at home on Friday which featured a walkoff home run from catcher Travis Steinke in the bottom of the 12th inning against the Prospects. Those fireworks preceded a pair of road wins Saturday and Sunday over the Okotoks Dawgs. The Bulls beat the Dawgs 16-3 Saturday and a 7-3 win on Sunday.
First baseman Mitch Dornblut got on track with four hits Sunday while centrefielder Corey Stewart had five hits in the two games against the Dawgs.
The wins put 7-1 Lethbridge a game and a half ahead of Edmonton (5-2). Okotoks is floundering at the bottom of the WMBLâ€™s West Division at 1-6 while the Medicine Hat Mavericks are in third with a 3-5 record. The Weyburn Beavers lead the Saskatchewan Division with a 5-1 record.
The Bulls host the Lethbridge Hurricanes tonight at Spitz Stadium for the second annual Alzheimerâ€™s Charity Softball Game. The tailgate party begins at 6 p.m., with a home-run derby scheduled for 7 p.m. The game itself is set to begin at 7:45 p.m.
Tickets can be bought for $15 in advance at the Bullsâ€™ office, the Hurricanesâ€™ office, the Alzheimer Society or at the door. Season ticket holders for the Hurricanes and the Bulls get in for $10.
