Coyotes open regular season at home

Okanagan College takes on Calgary Dinos Friday at Elks Stadium to kick off Canadian College Baseball Conference year

The Okanagan College Coyotes look to be in fine form heading into the Canadian College Baseball Conference season.

The Coyotes, who have won 13 straight games at home, will open the 2015 regular season this weekend at Elks Stadium to the Calgary Dinos and Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs.

The first series opens Friday at 6 p.m. against the Dinos.

OC and Calgary will play again Saturday at noon, followed by the Coyotes and Dawgs at 6 p.m.

PBA and OC will wrap up the weekend with 1 p.m. start on Sunday.

The Coyotes are coming off a five-game sweep of their opponents last weekend—four against  Edmonton and one from the Okanagan Athletics.

“We have been playing solid baseball lately,” said OC head coach Geoff White. “We have been getting quality pitching for the most part, been swinging the bats much better and executing at situational hitting.”

The statistical leaders for the Coyotes over the five games were:

• Tony Olson—4-8, 3 doubles, 5 stolen base

• Braden Heyland—6-12, 3 Runs, 4 RBI

• Brandon Graham—6-9, double, 5 runs, 2 RBI

• Bryan Elias—4-8, triple, run, 4 RBI

• Austin Orsted—5.1IP, 1ER, 1 H, 6 K

• Marcus Drewry—7IP, 1 R, 3 H, 7 K
