Another busy weekend on the diamonds for local clubs as both the 18U AAA Red Sox and 15U AAA Dodgers faced Yorkton opponents.

The Dodgers stood toe to toe with the Yorkton Cardinals in their Saturday double-header at James Korte Field in Muenster. In Game 1, the Dodgers saw an early lead dissolve in the fifth inning as the Cardinals went to work putting up five runs for a 5-3 lead after the top of the inning. Singles by the Cards’ Cohen Murray and Riley Steward jump started the scoring in the fifth. 

The Dodgers responded by putting up 3 in the bottom of 6. Taylor Coleman, Cade Armstrong and Ty Dauvin all contributed hits to the frame. The Dodgers tied the game in the seventh as Pryor Dyck singled to score the tying run.

Then, in dramatic fashion, Dayne Schommer, under the gun with a 3-2 count, laced a single to drive in the walk-off winning run and a 9-8 victory. 

In the second game, the Dodgers took command by the fourth inning, but a rally by the Cardinals, starting off with a three run streak in the fifth, saw the Dodgers fall 9-3.


Meanwhile down the road in Yorkton, the 18U AAA Red Sox had their hands full with the Parkland Expos on Sunday. In Game 1, the Expos shut out the Red Sox 5-0. Chaz Jaeb took the win on the mound with Landon Burkell stepping in for two thirds of an inning in relief. 

The second game brought a measure of revenge for the Red Sox. At the end of the third, teams were squared up at four apiece, but the Red Sox pulled away in the fifth when a Zach Holaday single to right brough Dallen Rude and Jack Biemans across the plate.

The Sox struck again on a plate error that Adam Korte took advantage of. The Red Sox sealed the deal in the top of the seventh as Joel Bauml’s single fly to right field scored Cam Marshak and Dalyn Smith for a 9-4 win. 


The Red Sox are in Saskatoon tonight to face the Cubs, while the Dodgers next see action in a week when they’ll meet the Sask5 Giants.
