They now get set for a tiebreaker against Lloydminster at 9 o'clock Sunday morning. For what it's worth, the Twins clipped the Sox 10-9 in extra innings on day one of the tournament.
The Bantam Humboldt Dodgers had a solid showing as well winning two of three, they suffered a tough 7-6 loss versus Macklin to start their Saturday in Regina at the AA Tier 3 tournament. It improved as they picked up back to back wins, an 8-7 shading of the Regina Blue Jays and an overwhelming 14-2 decision over the Regina Pacers in five innings. They will learn what's next for them following Sunday morning's contest between Macklin and the Jays.
The Mosquito Dodgers continue to push towards a provincial AAA championship. They improved to 3-0 outslugging the Saskatoon Dodgers 16-13 in their lone Saturday contest. They play their final round robin game Sunday at 8am against the Saskatoon Screwballs.
