Senior Cardinals

Wednesday the St. Albert Senior Cardinals host the Edmonton Expos in the Alberta West Central Baseball Association. The first pitch will be thrown at 6:45 p.m. at Legion Memorial Park.

The Cardinals handed the first place Westlock Red Lions their only loss of the season on June 11 and will be looking to repeat this Thursday on Westlock field. That game starts at 6:45 p.m.

The Cardinals are 4-1 this season and are looking to pull ahead of the 6-1 Westlock Red Lions.

Midget AA

Farmers were the only winners of the St. Albert Cardinals Sunday double-header with the Leduc Giants and the South Jasper Place Jays at Telus Field.

Both games were rained out and called off for safety reasons. The Jays will meet the Cardinals on July 5 to settle which team stands at the top of the division.

The Cardinals will be looking to spoil the Jays’ perfect 6-0 streak in their home arena. St. Albert has been excellent this year, going 5-1 this round and 21-1-1 on the season.

Bantam AAA

The St. Albert Cardinals had a wild weekend in the Okotoks Canada Day Bantam AAA Tournament.

The Cardinals opened strong on Friday night defeating the Regina Buffalos by a score of 10-3 before falling into a little bit of a rut and dropping two 10-6 games to the Saskatoon Bluejays and the Muenster Red Sox on Saturday.

They came out swinging again on Sunday but fell short to the Okotoks Dawgs Black in a high-scoring game that ended 18-10. The Cardinals reset and found their groove Monday, hammering the Regina Rays in an 8-1 blow out.

The Cardinals had a chance for revenge against the Saskatchewan Bluejays in the final game of the tournament late Monday but the results were not available to the Gazette by press time.

Midget AAA

The St. Albert Cardinals are the team to beat in the Midget AAA division and they reinforced that with two dominant performances over the Okotoks Dawgs White in a lopsided double header last Saturday.

Cardinals won 8-1 and then 19-0 two hours later.

Connor Burns scored five runs and tapped in five RBIs for the day. Dylan Gates, the 2013 Baseball Alberta player of the year, picked up three himself. The Cardinals are last year’s Tier 1 provincial finalists and the defending Western Canadian gold medalists.

They have been absolutely on fire this year and will be working to keep that streak alive on Canada Day against the Sherwood Park Dukes at Legion Memorial Field.

The first pitch will be thrown at 7 p.m.
