Baseball took over the weekend, with two games taking place Saturday and Sunday. The first game happened Saturday against the 18U AA Muenster Red Sox and the Regina Pacers.
The Red Sox saw the game slip away from them early on and could not recover in a 9- 4 loss to the Pacers on Saturday, June 11. The Pacers scored on a triple by Josh Curtin in the first inning, a single by Kian Knoll in the first as well, with an error taking place, and a single by Ethan Perron in the second.
The Pacers scored four more runs in the sixth inning, driven by a single from Curtin and a home run by Carter Ostapovich.
In the seventh inning, the Muenster team pulled up their socks, and got things moving, tallying three runs. The offence was led by Ryder Knittig, Rhett Bryksa, and Jayden Sparks, all driving in runs in the inning.
In the end, Carson Brooks took the win for the Regina Pacers, with the right-hander surrendering three runs on five hits over six innings, striking out three and walking zero. Nick Rutten threw one inning in relief.
Preston Dyok took the loss for the Red Sox, lasting five innings, allowing seven hits and five runs while striking out five. Lynden Loessl led Muenster Red Sox 18U AA with two hits in four at-bats.
The Regina team tallied ten hits in the game, with Perron, Curtin, and Ostapovich managing to have multiple hits. Two of the Pacers stole at least two bases, and Parron led the way with two.
Following the 18U AA loss, the 18U AAA East Central Red Sox took to the field this weekend against the 18U AAA White Butte Broncos with the Broncos taking the early lead, ending the game at an 8-5 victory on Sunday, June 12. The Broncos scored on a walk by Chase Leach, a single by Lucas Geisler, and a home run by Tate Olson in the second inning.
It looked as if the Red Sox would make a comeback after scoring three runs in the second inning, but would fall later in the game to the Broncos. The Red Sox offensive round was led by Merek Yeager and Cam Marshak, all driving in runs in the inning.
After the Red Sox scored a run in the top of the fifth, the Broncos responded with one of their own. The Red Sox scored when Riley Sylvestre singled on a 2-1 count, scoring one run, with the Broncos answered with Oldon drawing a walk, scoring one more run.
Brady Bye pitched the Broncos to victory, going for four and two-thirds innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and striking out six. Kellen Muirhead threw two and a third innings.
Dallen Rude took the loss for the Red Sox, surrendering six runs on three hits over three innings, striking out four.
The Broncos hit one home run on Sunday. Olson had a long ball in the second inning, Geisler had two hits in three at-bats.
The Red Sox racked up eight hits in the game, with Joel Bauml and Jack Biemans collecting multiple hits. Two Red Sox players stole at least two bases, with Marshack leading the way with two, but it was not enough to steal the win away from the Broncos
