Sylvan Lake Gulls beat Edmonton 3-2 on the road

Gulls improve to 4-3 on the season

The Sylvan Lake Gulls bounced back from their home opener defeat earlier this week beating the Edmonton Prospects 3-2 on the road Thursday evening.

The Gulls pitching was firing on all cyllinders in the win. Starting pitcher Josh Tucker put on a show striking out nine and allowing only four hits in six innings. Nick Vaselinovic finished out the remaining three innings containing their opponents striking out four with no hits.

Edmonton got on the board first scoring a run in the opening frame before the Gulls answered with one of their own in the top of the second second inning. The prospects would score one more in the third inning before the Gulls hammered home the two game-winning runs in the seventh.

Sylvan Lake now sits tied for second place in the west divison of the Western Canadian Baseball League standings with a 4-3 record.

They will now play four straight games at home including three against Fort McMurray on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. After a two day break they play Okotoks at home on Wednesday.
