The Coyotes came up short in three games on the over the weekend. The first game of the weekend had the Coyotes fall 2-1 in the bottom of the 7th when TRU centerfielder had a walk off single. Cole Parusinni was stuck with the loss on a complete game effort.
Game two with the University of Calgary finished in a 7-5 loss. Austin Orsted struggled on the mound and the Dinos capitalized. Jason Merz came in relief and shut the door but the Coyotes bats couldn’t capitalize.

Game three was again with the Dinos and Joel Lamont threw a complete game win. After surrendering two in the first and one in the second inning, Lamont settled in and shut the door on the Dinos. The Coyotes scored in the second half of the game after the Dinos bullpen walked four and gave up a couple hits in the 5th the Coyotes would score four and then another run in the 5th. The final finished 5-3.
Game four on the weekend wrapped up with the TRU Wolfpack. Brandon Becking got the ball and scattered 2 runs over 6 innings work. The Coyote bats struggled again as they were only able to scratch 8 hits.
“With the exception of a couple innings I thought we pitched and defended
well over the weekend. We struggled at the plate and couldn’t capitalize with runners in scoring position and that was the difference. Games are going to be tight and we have to execute better in offensive situations.” says Head Coach Geoff White.
