A sleeping offence came alive in game number two.
 
The Fort Saskatchewan Junior AAA Red Sox split the day with the Community Park Reds.
 
In game one, Greg Dekinder got the start on the mound in the 7-5  loss.
 
"In this league, five runs generally isn't going to win you a lot of games," said coach Darren Dekinder.
 
Game two was a completely different story as the Red Sox offence exploded for nine runs in the first inning on route to a 14-4 win.
 
"One of the things that we really work on in practice and in games is to take a real hitters mentality to the plate," said Dekinder.
 
Chris Spence pitched three strong innings for the Fort, Alex Stembicke came on in relief to finish off the win.
 
"(Spence) is in his last year with the team before he ages out, he's been a real workhorse for us," added Dekinder.
 
Next up for the (6-6) Junior AAA Red Sox will be the St Albert Cardinals on July 9, at Legion Memorial Ball Park.
