Storm ends season with two losses

Stettler Storm ended their season in the Battle River Men’s Baseball league with two consecutive losses in the semi-final playoff series against Rosalind.

Having lost the first game in an away game, the Storm had to travel to Rosalind once again on July 20 as the wet conditions on the diamond at the ag grounds did not allow the local team to host the game.

The Storm lost the game by a score of 15 to 6.

“Reid Keeley started on the mound for Stettler and Morgan Vanderlee finished,” said Scott McKenzie of the Storm.

“Scotty Campbell hit a pair of home-runs in the losing cause,” he added.

Rosalind won the series two games to none and they are now playing and are moving onto the finals to play the final series against Killam.

Looking back to the season, McKenzie said, overall it was an average year for the team.

“Our pitching was good, defensive play improved as the year went on, but our offense never found its stride,” said McKenzie.

But he said next season may bring many surprises.

“The Battle River Baseball League is going to wood bats next year, so next year’s league is wide open,” McKenzie said.

“We will be looking to improve on all aspects of our game going into next year.”

“We will also be looking to play more baseball by going to a few more tournaments than we did this year,” he added.
