Two days after their second road win of the season, the Lethbridge Bulls go for their first one at home tonight.

The Bulls are back at Spitz Stadium when they host the Medicine Hat Mavericks in Western Major Baseball League play at 7 p.m.

Lethbridge comes into tonight’s game at 2-7 following Sunday’s 13-7 win over the Brooks Bombers in Brooks.

After going 0-2 in their home-opening weekend against the Okotoks Dawgs Friday and Saturday, the Bulls hit four home runs Sunday, including a grand slam from right fielder Brett Mercier in the sixth inning that handed Lethbridge a lead they didn’t relinquish. His bases-loaded homer also doubled his RBIs to eight this season.

Mercier is batting .472 on the season, second-best in the league behind Medicine Hat’s Zack Gray, who is batting .500 through four games and 20 at-bats.

Mercier also leads the league in hits with 17 through his first eight games. He and Hank Forrest also lead the Bulls with three doubles each.

The Bulls are back home Thursday when the Bombers come to town for the rematch at 7 p.m.

The team heads north to Edmonton for a three-game set against the Prospects Friday through Sunday.

The Bulls are back home June 19 when the Dawgs pay a visit.
