On an evening where the average age in the crowd was certainly cut in half unfortunately so was the Mavericks result. After a house of horrors sixth inning that saw the red and white surrender 6 runs, to add insult to injury an outfield collision between Julien Ly and Jon Velasco forced the Mavericks to use some little league tactics and bring in pitcher Jaymon Cervantes and infielder Nolan Rattai to finish the evening for the banged-up and unable to return outfielders.
Although the scoreboard showed a dominating 11-4 score, that didn't seem to take any life away as the nearly sold-out crowd was cheerful and gave the Mavericks a chance to even the season series early on.
A fourth-inning two-run bomb from Velasco left a lucky little leaguer going home with a game ball as he launched his 3rd home run of the season in just his fourth game as a Maverick.
The support from the community was in full effect with team sponsors such as MacDesign and Booster Juice well involved in the activities. Newcomer Austin Sojka, a senior from Oklahoma Wesleyn, was chosen as the ‘Booster Juice Player of the Game” and showed off his impressive throwing ability and quickness at the third base spot.
While it's still early in the season, one could argue that the lengthy northern road trip is just what the doctor ordered for the Mavericks. The team heads out to Edmonton today to begin a two-game series with Edmonton followed by a four-game series against Fort Mcmurray.
The Mavericks return home next Tuesday (June 11th) U17 World Hockey Night to face the Fort Mcmurray Giants (1-4) where they will look to build off of last years championship and have a “batter” game.
