Pitching was the key as the Powerline All-Stars racked up a convincing 10 - 0 win over the Battle River All-Stars in Camrose on Tuesday night.

 

The trio of Steve Ofrim, Scott Peterson, and Jeff McDonald allowed only two hits, did not walk a single batter, and struck out seven, facing only 31 Battle River batters over nine innings. McDonald also contributed on offense with a solo home run in the seventh, the only tater of the match.

 

Jonny Ewanowich of the Ardrossan Steelers with an RBI double in the fourth drove in the first Powerline run, and Derek Olafson drove in two to ignite a four -run fifth inning, which gave the Powerline hurlers all the cushion they needed.
