Game 2 of Bulls and Gulls series going tonight

By Lethbridge Herald on August 18, 2021.

After facing each other for five consecutive nights, the Lethbridge Bulls and Sylvan Lake Gulls got a night off, though not intentionally.

Kicking off the Western Canadian Baseball League playoffs, the Bulls doubled up the Gulls 4-2 in Game 1 of the teams’ opening round, best-of-three series Monday night in Sylvan Lake.

Game 2 was scheduled for Tuesday night at Spitz Stadium, but was postponed due to rain.

Instead, Game 2 goes tonight at 7:05 p.m. at Spitz Stadium, weather pending.

The win came after the teams faced each other four times in a row – twice in Lethbridge Thursday and Friday and two more times Saturday and Sunday in Sylvan Lake – to end the WCBL regular season. The Gulls won all four games.

But in Game 1 Monday, Bulls starting pitcher Bryce Oriold-Fraser went the distance on the hill, allowing two runs on five hits, walking one and striking out seven.

Bulls first baseman Ty Penner went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI.

In other WCBL post season play Tuesday night, the Edmonton Prospects swept the first-place Okotoks Dawgs Black following a 2-1 win in Edmonton as Prairie Baseball Academy alumnus Scott Gillespie threw seven innings of one-run ball.

The Prospects won Game 1 10-5 Monday night in Okotoks.

If necessary, Game 3 of the Bulls and Gulls series will head back to Sylvan Lake Thursday.
