The Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs varsity baseball team improved their record  8-4 on the season after taking three of four road games off the Victoria Collegiate Golden Tide over the weekend.

“I thought we did OK especially with the long bus ride,” said Todd Hubka, PBA head coach.

“We came off on the Friday night and played a really good game. For spending 14 hours on a bus, and getting off and playing a nine-inning game, [we] played real tough and beat them 6-0 that night. So real happy with the way we handled that. We just can’t seem to put four in a row together and we’re still working on that.”

PBA began the weekend with a 6-0 win on Friday.

Owen Lucas went 2-for-4 at the plate, scoring one run and hitting in three RBIs and Justin Scott went 3-for-3 and scored two runs to lead PBA in the win.

PBA pitcher Jack Hudson pitched seven innings, giving up six hits, not allowing any runs while striking out four in the win.

The Dawgs began Saturday with 13-6 win.

Zaden Wake went 2-for-4 and scored three runs; Delcan OKane went 3-for-5 and scored two runs and drove in two RBIs ;and Scott went 3 for-6 while scoring  a run and batting in two RBIs.

Jake Maniago pitched 5 1/3 innings while giving up three runs on five hits and striking out eight in the win.

The Golden Tide got one back with a 5-3 win in the second of the twin bill on Saturday.

Kai Ryden and Wake scored the only runs for the Dawgs in the loss and Cody Graf took the loss after surrendering three runs on six hits.

The Dawgs edged the Golden Tide 8-7 on Sunday in the series finale.

Wake went 2 -for-4, scored a run and batted in three RBI’s, Scott went 2-for-5 and scored two runs and Morgan Halliday went 2-for-4 while scoring two runs to lead the way for PBA.

Ethan Smith recorded the win after coming on in relief of Brayden Dewitt.

PBA is 7-3 in their last 10 games and will look to keep the hot streak going when they host the VIU Mariners for four games beginning Friday.
