Bandits get rough treatment in Medicine Hat

Heading up to Medicine Hat for a trio of games against the Knights, the Bandits ran into some trouble.

It’s safe to say the Bandits had a tough weekend.

Heading up to Medicine Hat for a trio of games against the Knights, the Bandits ran into some trouble, losing 7-4 and 9-0 on Saturday, and dropping a 14-1 decision on Sunday.

For their first outing, the Knights took a 4-0 lead at the bottom of the fourth inning and added three more runs in the sixth. The Bandits scored a trio of runs in the sixth as well, and tallied another in the seventh.

Cedar Kemp, Ryotara Yukawa and Devon Marra each had an RBI, while Kemp, Marra, Brenden Bird and Kei Chlopan scored. Brandon Ouilette had the hot bat, hitting three singles to first base.

Marra handled most of the pitching duties, throwing for six strikeouts, while Chlopan also briefly got on the mound.

The two teams had a rematch right away, and the Knights scored early with a pair of runs in the first and second innings for a 4-0 lead. Medicine Hat scoured four more in the fourth inning and added a single in the fifth—all the while keeping the Bandits off the scoreboard.

The Cranbrook team only made three hits, which came from Bird, Kemp and Tyler Thorn.

Conner Armstrong shared pitching duties with Ouilette and Chlopan. Between the three of them, the Knights were able to make seven hits.

The Knights came to play in their final game of the triple-header on Sunday morning, scoring six runs in the first inning and eight in the third on the way to a 14-1 win.

Armstrong scored the only run for the Bandits off a sacrifice fly from Ouilette in the third inning.

The Bandits are back at it this weekend when they return to the U.S. for games in Libby against the Loggers and the Whitefish Glacier Twins.
