ST. ALBERT — Tyson Denham and Travis Steinke each drove in a run in a losing cause as the Red Deer Carstar Braves were bounced 11-2 by the Okotoks Jr. Dawgs Black on Saturday and finished with a 1-2 record in the provincial midget AAA baseball championship.

Mark Fay had two hits, including a double, for Carstar. The Braves used three pitchers, with Blair Mulder allowing six earned runs on 10 hits over four innings, and Denham and Kalem Hamilton each surrendering two earned runs while working one and two frames, respectively.

Earlier, the Braves opened with a narrow 4-3 loss to the Spruce Grove Sox on Friday and then ripped the host St. Albert Cardinals 8-0 on Saturday.

Brett Littlefair and Chayse Marion, with a single and double, each contributed two hits against Spruce Grove, with Littlefair adding an RBI and Mulder also knocking in a run.

Neither Scott Trapp, who pitched six innings, nor Steinke allowed an earned run on the Braves mounds, with Trapp giving up six hits, fanning four batters and walking three, and Steinke recording one strikeout during a hitless inning.

Marion cracked a three-run homer and Mulder stroke a two-run single as the Braves clobbered the Cardinals. Hamilton chipped in with three singles and Littlefair scored two runs.

Meanwhile, Mart Davis tossed a complete-game shutout, giving up just three hits while fanning six batters and walking four.
