Carson Christensen earned the win over CalWest after holding his opponents to four runs on two hits and five walks while fanning seven through 4 and 1/3.

Christensen also added 5 RBI while going a perfect 8-for-8 with 6 RBIover the three-game span.

Graves added 4 RBI while going 4-for-6 through the weekend.

The wins put Medicine Hat at 3-1 after an 18-1 loss to Bow Ridge in Friday’s opener.

The majors are back in action Monday against Fish Creek.
