CALGARY - The River Dogs made it three wins in a row with a 12-0 shellacking of the Electric City Outlaws this morning at the Pacific Northwest Regional Tournament in Alberta.
The team has rolled past the competition in the National Division bracket, scoring 31 runs while dishing up three goose egg wins.
"The wins are an accumulation of a few of things. We're playing good defense ... have gotten a good effort from our pitching staff ... and the competition hasn't been that good so far," coach Randy Boruff said. "But that's about to change as we go up against some of the better teams in the American Division bracket. We are peaking at the right time I believe, so we expect to continue to play well and hopefully win this thing and qualify for the World Series in Klamath Falls."
Logan Moss got the start and the win against the Outlaws going five innings while giving up only three hits in the complete game shutout.
The Dogs jumped out to an early 6-0 lead after one inning was in the books.
Justin DeHoog went yard with the bags full in the bottom of the second to give the River Dogs a 10-run lead and put the game on ice.
The Dogs will match up with the American Division AAA Calgary Blues or the Spradlin Rock Hawks tomorrow night at 7 p.m.
