The Bulls continued their great play to open the 2015 season. With a 6-4 victory over rival Medicine Hat the Bulls moved to 4-0. It was a dreary night at Spitz Stadium, but that didn’t stop the bulls from pounding out 12 hits on the evening.
As has been the trend to start the season, the Bulls got off to a bit of a slow start. Medicine Hat took the lead in the top of the 1st inning. The bulls tied the game in the bottom of the second, and the score remained 1-1 until the sixth. The Bulls put up four runs in the inning, Travis Steinke coming up clutch with a two run double on a perfectly executed hit and run. Medicine Hat put up three runs in the top of the 8th as a result of some suspect defense from the home team. It did not end up hurting them though, second year Bulls pitcher Chris Stadolka collected his first save of the season, ending any hope of a Medicine Hat comeback.
The Bulls received another stellar starting pitching performance. Pat Kelley through 6 strong innings, allowing only 1 run over that span. Andrew Grieder pitched a scoreless 7th inning, Reno Dupuis was a victim of a couple errors in the 3 run 8th inning. Over the first four games of the season the Bulls pitching staff is supporting a 3.00 ERA.
The Bulls will be back in action Thursday evening when they take on the Edmonton Prospects at Spitz Stadium. Game time is at 7:05pm.
