The Dukes took the games by scores of 13 - 3 and 20 - 4.

Big innings turned out the be the demise of the Brewers.  In the opener, the Dukes scored seven times in the first inning and added four more in the fourth.  In the second of the twin-bill Calgary piled up five runs in the third then put things away with nine runs in the seventh inning.

Airdrie was held to four hits in the first game and seven in the second.  The Brewers are now 0 and 3 on the year.

Next action for the club will be on Tuesday night (May 15) when they face the Canadians at 6:30 at the FMBA Field in Calgary.
