On Monday night the Bulls headed to Brooks and came up short 3 runs losing 6-3 to the Bombers. Starting the game on the bump for the Bulls was Pat Kelley. Kelley did a blameless job of limiting Brooks’ offense. Unfortunately, the Saskatchewan native shook hands with his dugout after 4 innings due to defensive mistakes that racked up his pitch count too high to continue. Relief hurler’s Terrell Dorsey and Kregg Snook both shut the gate for the Bombers only giving up 1 run with 2 hits in a combined 4 innings of work (3.0 Dorsey, 1.0 Snook).
Mike Moffatt, Ryan Pouwells, and Lachlan Mayo all had 2 hits a piece hitting .500 on the night. Despite the hot bats, the Bull’s left 8 runners on base over the course of 9 innings. With that being said, clutch hitting that normally occurs in the Bulls offense was a main contributing factor in losing Monday night’s game.
“Players make plays to win ball games, that’s their job. When that doesn’t happen, it makes it difficult to win, regardless of how talented they may be. Every team has slumps in baseball, it happens every year to the best. Things will turn around shortly for them, it’s better that they have overcome their mental assassin now than in Playoffs” said Head Coach Ryan Macdonald
