The win also puts the Dawgs Black in second place, one-and-a-half games back of the Edmonton Prospects (10-5), while the Bulls sit in third, two-and-a-half back of the Prospects.

Lethbridge is back in Okotoks tonight to take on the Red Dawgs at 7:05 p.m.

On Tuesday night the Dawgs Black opened up a 2-0 lead after two innings and added two more in the fifth for a 4-0 lead before their bats sounded off later in the game.

Tyrese Johnson, Kaden Zarowny, Alejandro Cazorla, Ty Doucette, Kobe Laevens and Dryden Howse each had two hits for Okotoks.
