The Lethbridge Bulls headed back to Seaman Stadium Thursday to avenge their 5-1 loss on the Dawgs the previous night. Thanks to a solid start on the mound and some timely hitting from the heart of the lineup, the Bulls defeated the Dawgs 4-2 in just over two hours of play.
Bulls starting pitcher Michael Lange was solid on the mound throwing 5 2/3 innings allowing 1 earned run on 3 hits while striking out 4 Dawgs hitters. Austin Church was first in relief of Lang and threw 2 1/3 scoreless innings before giving way for Jeremey Filipek who threw a scoreless ninth to earn the save.
Offensively, the Bulls were led by Ridge Gonsoulin who went 3-for-5 at the plate with 2 runs scored in his first start of the season. Joel Blake and Dale Anderson both went 2-for-4 at the plate and Jesse Sawyer contributed with 2 RBIs on night courtesy of a 2-run home run in the top of the 6th inning, his second long ball of the season.
The Bulls look to build on this solid road win when they host the Medicine Hat Mavericks Friday night at 7:05pm in the home opener at Spitz Stadium.
