The most oft-repeated line after a home run hitter goes deep?
“And the thing of it is ... I WAS NOT even trying to hit a home run.”
Brendan Rose hit his second homer in as many nights -- and third in five years with the Okotoks Dawgs, who went on to a 10-3 win against the Fort McMurray Giants.
While Rose was not trying to go deep the night before -- he described it to Dawgs broadcaster Dustin Scaracini as “an accident,” he was trying to go deep in this one. Rose went deep to right on the first pitch, in the seventh.
