The Jets took two today from the Okotoks Jr. Dawgs in their home Seaman Stadium. Game 1 seen the Jets win 4-1 behind a hard earned complete game victory by Chad Hodges. Game 2 seen the Jets pitch by committee on their way to a 7-3 win. The Jets offense executed better today then in past weekends with multiple runs batted in with two outs. In the first game, Brendan Hendriks would hit a 2 run home run deep over the right field wall in the 3rd inning that would put the Jets ahead to stay. Hodges would allow his only run of the game in the 5th inning after an error followed by an infield single (that would break up Hodges no-hitter) and another error. That would be all for the Jr. Dawgs in the game.
Game 2 seen Ben Dartnell start for the first time in his life and he would pitch 2 solid innings keeping the Jets off the board. Anthony McKinley and Logan Seifrit would combine to throw the remaining five innings keeping the Jr. Dawgs in check. The offense came throughout the game and was led by Brendan Hendriks as he drove the Jets offense his with 3 for 4 effort including an RBI single and a double that he would later score on.
The Jets look to keep up Saturday’s success tomorrow with the second half of their four game set beginning at 1pm with a doubleheader at Jets Stadium. Mark Baigent and Zach Mayo are the Jets scheduled starters. The Jets record is now 14 wins, 7 losses, and 1 tie.
