OC take 3 of 4 from PBA, finish season 21-7 (New Team Record)

The Coyotes travelled to Lethbridge this past weekend for their final 4 games of the 2019 regular season. OC had the opportunity to lock down first place with a sweep, but fell just short taking 3 of 4 games. Now, the waiting game will happen as TRU plays UFV in a rescheduled game. If TRU wins, then OC will place 2nd. If UFV wins, then OC will place 1st.

In game one vs the PBA Dawgs, the OC bats came out swinging as they would score 11 runs on 15 hits and took advantage of 7 PBA walks and 6 errors. Leading the way were Senior Jake Fischer and Freshman Brendan Luther, who both recorded 4 hits. Fischer would blast his 4th homerun of the year and would also have 5 RBI in the game. Senior Jeremy Buckley would go 2 for 3 and would have 3 stolen bases. Sophomore Jesse Poniewozik would throw 5 innings allowing 5 runs on 8 hits before giving the ball to Sophomore Alex Dawson, who pitched the remaining 4 innings allowing 2 runs on 3 hits. OC would win the game 11-7.

Brendan Luther

In game two, the OC defense would let them down as they would commit 7 errors which would ultimately cost them the game. Freshman Brett Reid would throw very well for 6 innings allowing 5 runs on 7 hits. Sophomore Justin Lanigan would come in relief and would struggle as he would only throw 2/3 of an inning allowing 4 runs on 3 hits. Freshman Derick Powell would relieve Lanigan and would finish the game throwin 1 1/3 innings alloqing 1 unearned run on 2 hits. On offense, Luther would continue to swing a hot bat going 2 for 2 with two walks. Sophomore Nate Postle would also have 2 hits including his first career college homerun. Postle would also have 2 RBI and would come in to score 3 times. OC would lse game two 10-7.

Nate Postle

Game three saw the Coyotes get back on track and would have a tremendous outing by Junior Wyatt Hummel on the mound. Hummel would throw 8 innings allowing just 2 runs on 6 hits, he would walk just two batters and struck out 6. In relief, Sophomore Gavin Barrett would allowing no runs and no hits in the final frame. Four Coyotes would have two hits in the game including Senior Davis Todosichuk, Freshman Nolan King, Fischer and Postle. Postle would also drive in 4 RBI in the game. OC would win the game 8-2.

Wyatt Hummel

In the final game of the regular season, the Coyotes had the opportunity to make team history. Getting to 21 wins would set a new team record for most wins in a season and OC would get the performance they would need on the mound. Freshman Nic Taylor would throw his best game of the year going 8 innings allowing no runs and just 2 hits. Getting the save would be Freshman Austin Brown allowing no runs and no hits in the bottom of the 9th. The OC bats would only muster 5 hits in the game but would take advantage of 5 walks and would steal 9 bases in the game. OC would win the final game of the season 3-0.

Nic Taylor

This season was full of records being broken. Senior Trevor Brigden set the single season strikeout record at 64 and also set the record for most wins in a season at 6. Junior Wyatt Hummel set a new ERA record with a 0.87 ERA (min 20ip). The OC pitching staff also set new records with a 3.22 team ERA, and also struck out a record 268 batters. The OC offense also set a record for most hits with 275 and tied their best batting average at .283. The big record broken this year was the stolen base record, OC amassed 96 stolen bases this season, a number that will surely stand for a long time.

OC will now wait for the result of todays make up game between TRU and UFV to determine their standing for the CCBC Championship tournament that start on Thursday April 9th.
