There was a lot of anticipation last night as the Millers fought for game two against the Okotoks Dawgs in the three-game-series for the Western Canadian Baseball League final.
After a hard-hitting loss on Tuesday with the Dawgs winning game one 12-3, the Millers fought tooth and nail in game two to come out on top and force a third game.
They took over the Dawgs with a 3-1 victory.
Right Fielder Nate Mensik, came in in the second inning setting the tone of the game with a home run swing.
Another run wasn't made until the top of the 6th inning, when Okotoks Dawgs' Centre Fielder Micah McDowell took one run from the bat of his teammate Brendan Luther.
The Millers were quick to come back though and take the lead in the bottom of the 6th when Mensik got another run after 3rd Baseman Austin Gurney went up to bat also getting himself on the bases.
In that same bottom half, 2nd Baseman Luke Lachance went up to bat giving Gurney the chance to steal another home run, putting the Millers in a two run lead.
The lead was all they needed to finish off the last innings and walk away victorious, forcing a third game.
The Millers are now back in Okotoks for the final game of the best-of-three series tonight, August 18th.
First pitch of the game is just after 7 p.m. The game can be livestreamed through the IKS Live YouTube page.
