Wolves, Braves both win

The Sight & Sound Wolves left the Sabaskong Lakers howling at the moon.
Kurtis Wepruk and Cole Tymkin bashed home runs as the Wolves cruised to a 14-3 victory over the visiting Lakers in Rainy River District Fastball League action last night.

The game was held at the St. Francis Sportsfields due to the poor field conditions at VanJura.
Sight & Sound (9-1) used a terrific pitching performance from Marcel Pagee to remain in second place—one game behind the Big Grassy Braves (10-0).
The Braves manhandled the newly-renamed Stratton Bobcats (0-9) by a count of 17-2 last night.
Meanwhile, an all-Couchiching clash saw Beef’s Warriors (5-3-1) ride the arm of Sheldon Kelly to a 4-1 triumph over the Raiders (2-4-2).
Other games included Barwick topping Big Island 12-8, Dawson outslugging Manitou 25-17, and Northwest Bay edging the Sabaskong Cubs 11-9.
If Mother Nature decides to co-operate, George Oltsher Field in Barwick will be the site of a men’s fastball tournament this weekend.
League action then will resume on Canada Day (weather permitting) with the Raiders hosting the Lakers, Sight & Sound in Sabaskong to face the Cubs, and Beef’s Warriors at Northwest Bay.
Manitou travels to Big Grassy, Dawson entertains Barwick, and Big Island is in Stratton.
All games begin at 7 p.m.
