SOMBA Tigers bantam baseball team earned two wins against Kamloops River Dawgs to improve their record to 4-3.

The Tigers won Game 2 against the Riverdogs 9-8 when Patrick McCan hit a fly ball over the centerfielder’s head to score Jordan Blake. The Tigers trailed the game 8-7 heading into the fifth inning (due to time limit), when Travis Doroshuk took a lead off walk then stole second with Jordan Blake at the plate. Blake laid down a perfect bunt to third base making it safely to first base and advancing Doroshuk to third. An early steal from Blake confused Kamloops as Doroshuk took advantage and came into score tying the game at 8-8. Blake then got moved over by Matt Brodt single then scored on McCan’s hit. Tyler Lemke replaced Blake on the mound and helped the Tigers comeback. In Game one, McCall did an exceptional pitching keeping the River Dawgs to four runs, with two of those against him. The Tigers bats then caught fire and helped them win 9-4.

The Tigers are now 4-3 with their next game May 29 against Kelowna 2  at 2:30 p.m. and Rutland  at 5 p.m.
