Final Weekend Recap vs UC

The Okanagan College Coyotes wrapped up their regular season play this past weekend with a 4 games set against the University of Calgary Dinos with first place on the line. The Coyotes would wrap up the weekend coming just short by splitting the weekend games. They would finish the season in second place with a 20-8 record, one game behind the Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs.

In game one on Friday, the OC offense could not get anything going as the Dinos starter would hold the Coyotes to no hits until the 7th inning. Catcher Jake Fischer (Junior, Edmonton, AB) would get the Coyotes first hit in the bottom of the 7th with a lead off single. OC would only manage one more hit in the game, coming off the bat of outfielder Trevor Mlait (Fresh, West Kelowna, BC). He would eventually come around to score for the Coyotes lone run in the game. Starting pitcher Chris Wyslobocki (Fresh, Toronto, ON) would go 8 strong innings allowing just 3 earned runs on 6 hits. Final score 4-1 Dinos.

On Saturday, the Coyotes would look to rebound offensively and get back to their hitting ways. In game one, starting pitcher Cole Parussini (Senior, Vancouver, BC) would struggle to be consistent and would only last 4 innings. He would give up 8 earned runs on 7 hits and would strike out 5. OC would jump out to an early lead, 4-2 in after 2 innings, but the Dinos would reply with 3 runs in the top of the 3rd to take the lead. They would add 3 more runs in the 5th inning. In relief, Jesse Poniewozik (Fresh, Edmonton, AB) would throw a strong 4 innings allowing just 1 earned run on 3 hits, and struck out 4. This would allow the OC offense to battle back. In the bottom of the 6th, OC would put up 4 runs to tie the game at 8-8. OC would score a run in each of the next two innings to push the score to 10-8. Wyatt Hummel (Junior, West Kelowna, BC) would come in for the save in the 9th inning. He would allow one run before shutting the door. Offensively, the Coyotes were led by Noah Wood Jolivet (Soph, Mississauga, ON) who had 4 RBI, and catcher Jake Fischer (Junior, Edmonton, AB) and Eric Junnola (Junior, Okatoks, AB) both had 2 hits. Final Score 10-9 Coyotes.

In Game two, the Coyotes would not be able to overcome an early deficit. The Dinos offense would capitalize on their opportunities scoring 7 times in the top of the 2nd inning. Starting pitcher Zac Yandeau (Senior, Plumas, MB) would allot 9 earned runs in 4.1 innings before giving the ball to Alex Dawson (Fresh, Richmond, BC). Dawson would throw 2.1 innings allowing 4 earned runs on 2 hits. Brandon Becking (Senior, Coquitlam, BC) would throw 1.1 innings allowing 1 earned run and then Hummel would finish the game with a clean 9th inning. The OC offense would chip away at the lead, but the pitchers and defense just could not shut down the Dinos. Wood-Jolivet would again have a big game going 3 for 6, Davis Todosichuk (Senior, Kelowna, BC) would get 2 hits and 3 RBI, Jared Frew (Senior, Calgary, AB) and Junnola would both have 2 hits and 2 RBI. Final score 15-10 Dinos.

In the final game of the regular season, OC needed a win to give them a chance at first place. They would deliver both on the mound and at the plate. Starting pitcher Trevor Brigden (Senior, Toronto, ON), who is normally the teams closer, game the team 6.1 innings of dominance as he would give up just 2 hits and strike out 11 batters. Aiden Mordecai (Soph, Cloverdale, BC) would finish off the 7th inning. Frew would have another 2 hits game and would drive in 3 runs. Brandon Graham (Senior, Prince George, BC) would drive in two runs and would have 2 hits in the game. The OC offense capitalized on 12 walks and would win the game 10-0 in 7 innings.

Series Recap vs UFV

The OC Coyotes recently played a home and home with the University of Fraser Valley Cascades, a matchup between two of the top 3 teams in the Canadian College Baseball Conference. The first two games of the series were played in Kelowna last Friday, the away games in Chilliwack were supposed to be played on Saturday but were moved to Tuesday as weather forced a rescheduling.

In game one, OC sent Chris Wyslobocki (Fresh, Toronto, On) to the Mound and he would continue his consistent freshman season. He would throw 7 innings, giving up 7 hits, and gave up just 2 earned runs. Cole Parussini (Senior, Vancouver, BC) would come in relief for the last two innings and would struggle to keep the 6-2 lead the Coyotes had going into the 9th. He would allow 4 runs in the 9th to make the score 6-6. The Offense in the game was powered by First Baseman Jared Frew (Senior, Calgary, AB) who would blast his 4th homerun of the season and add 3 RBI to his league lead. Catcher Jake Fischer (Junior, Edmonton, AB) would break out going 3 for 5. Outfielders Davis Todosichuk (Senior, Kelowna, BC) and Noah Wood-Jolivet (Soph, Mississauga, ON) would both have 2 hits in the game. With the score tied 6-6 in the bottom of the 9th, the Coyotes would load the bases for Designated Hitter Damien Obrigewtich (Fresh, Edmonton, AB). He would drive a ball deep enough to right field to allow Fischer to tag up at third and score the winning run. Final score 7-6.

Game two would see the OC defense struggle as they would commit 7 errors. Aiden Mordecai (Soph, Cloverdale, BC) would start on the mound, and while giving up 7 runs, only one would be an earned run due to all the errors behind him. The offenses for both teams would capitalize on walks and errors throughout the game. Todosichuk would continue his good offensive season racking up 3 hits and 2 RBI, and Jared Dulaba (Senior, Port Coquitlam, BC) would add to his stellar final season with 2 hits including his 6th double of the season. He would also drive in 2 runs and come around to score 3 times. In relief on the mound, Brandon Becking (Senior, Coquitlam, BC) would get little help behind him and would give up 5 runs, 3 earned, in just one inning of work. Justin Lanigan (Fresh, Cloverdale, BC) would throw 2 scoreless innings to give the Coyotes offense time to work. With the score now 12-12 in the bottom of the 7th, Fischer would score on a past ball to make the score 13-12, when the lights suddenly shut off. The game would be suspended until Tuesday when the Coyotes travelled to Chilliwack. Once the games continued, Wyatt Hummel (Junior, West Kelowna, BC) would take the mound and throw a 1-2-3 8th inning, and Trevor Brigden (Senior, Toronto, ON) would shut down the Cascades in the 9th. Dulaba would add an insurance run in the bottom of the 8th when he blasted his second homerun of the season over the center field wall. Final score 14-12 Coyotes.

Dulaba would continue to hit the ball as he would again blast a homerun over the center field wall and would add another base hit. Obrigewitch would come up clutch as he would hit a bases clearing triple to put the game out of reach. Final score 6-3 Coyotes.

In the final game, the Coyotes offense would capitalize on 4 Cascade errors to put up 11 runs and starting pitcher Cole Parussini would throw a stellar 5 innings giving up just one hit with two outs in the 5th. Catcher Sean Robbins (Soph, Edmonton, AB) would go 2 for 3 in the game to lead the offense. The Coyotes would mercy the Cascades in 5 innings as the 10 run rule would come into effect. Final score 11-0 Coyotes.

By sweeping the Cascades, the Coyotes now sit in first place, a half game up on the Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs.
