The East Central U18 AAA Red Sox are silver medalists in this year's provincial baseball competitions held this weekend in Saskatoon.
The Red Sox finished 3 and 0 in their pool to advance to the semi final on Sunday where they faced the South East Twins. Red Sox pitcher Dallen Rude notched a shut out giving up only 2 hits and striking out ten in his full seven inning contribution to the 3 - 0 win.
That took the Red Sox to a final showdown with rival Saskatoon Cubs where the Sox came up just short in the offensive battle that ended in a 12-6 score. The Sox and Cubs were tied at six apiece going into the top of the 4th when the Cubs unleashed a 6 run flurry that would wrap up scoring on the day.
Congratulations go out to Red Sox pitcher Dallen Rude on being voted top pitcher for the 2022 Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League 18UAAA season.
Next up for the 18UAAA Red Sox is the Western Canadian Championships in Regina Aug 19-20-21.
