The Red Deer Riggers managed just a single hit in a 6-0 loss to the Everett, Wash., Merchants in Saturday’s B-side final of the Kamloops International baseball tournament.

Dustin Northcott took the loss, surrendering 11 hits and five runs over four and one-third innings. The Merchants scored one unearned run off Riggers reliever Joel Peterman, who didn’t allow a hit while fanning two batters in one and two-thirds innings.

The Riggers were on the verge of being held hitless when Josh Edwards stroked a one-out single in the bottom of the seventh frame.

Earlier in the day, the Riggers dropped a 1-0 quarter-final decision to the Seattle Studs as Drew Boyer suffered the loss after tossing a four-hitter through five and two-thirds frames while walking four batters and fanning one. Peterman worked one and one-third scoreless innings, giving up five hits and recording one strikeout, while Aaron Dunsmore was two-for-two at the plate.

Red Deer opened the tournament with a 6-0 win over Everett on a three-run, walk-off homer from Dunsmore, then lost 9-2 to the host Sun Devils and defeated the Northwest Honkers.

The Riggers take on the Parkland White Sox in a Sunburst League game tonight at 7:30 p.m., then host their own tournament Friday to Sunday at Great Chief Park. Red Deer’s first game Friday is set for 7:30 p.m.
