The Swift Current 57's dropped a 12-9 decision to the visiting Moose Jaw Miller Express in a wild game at Mitchell Field that had just about everything happen.

Moose Jaw jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning on an RBI single by Nate Mensik that scored Zach Campbell, and Mensik later scored on an RBI double by Austin Gurney. The 57's responded with a Brody Alexandre solo home run in the second, and then after Campbell scored on a Bryan Reyes groundout in the top of the third, Tejean Smith blasted a two-run homer in the bottom of the inning to tie the game.

With two outs in the top of the fourth inning, the game was suspended with lightning in the area as a brief thunderstorm moved through Swift Current. The game resumed after a one-hour delay and two scoreless innings followed before a wild sixth inning that lasted over one hour and where both teams combined for 12 runs and sent at least nine batters to the plate.

In the top of the inning, Gurney got on with a double and Cam Grant followed with a single. Kalli Einarson scored Gurney on an RBI single, then Michael Speck cleared the bases with a three-run home run. Kenny Jinks then came to the mound for Swift Current for Gregor Farquharson, who replaced starter Patrick Tangen after the rain delay. After Campbell walked and Luke Lachance reached on an error, Mensik brought them home on a single to right field, and then came home himself on a Reyes triple. Gurney came up again as the Millers batted around, and was hit by the first pitch. An argument ensued where 57's catcher Logan Stockton was ejected from the game and replaced by Nick Chavez. Grant then scored Reyez on an RBI single, and Jinks was replaced by Zac Laird, who got the last two elusive outs to give the 57's a chance to get back on the bats.

After two quick outs and walks by Alexandre and Owen Stevenson in the bottom of the inning, Dylan Coty got on base with a comebacker to pitcher Cam O'Reilly. Cory Bonstrom then cleared the bases with a three-run RBI triple that spelled the end of the night for O'Reilly, who was replaced by Triston Seitz. Thomas Collins singled on the very first pitch from Seitz to score Bonstrom, and Smith hit a single before Logan Grant, the ninth batter to come up for the 57's, flew out to centre to end a wild inning.

Reyes got an RBI single to extend the Millers' lead in the seventh, and Collins hit an RBI single to score Coty, and scored himself with a single by Smith to wrap up the scoring in a game that took four hours and 20 minutes to complete.

Six pitchers took the mound for Swift Current with Tangen starting the game, striking out two batters and allowing three runs on four hits before being pulled when the game resumed from the rain delay. Farquharson took the loss and Laird struck out four batters in relief. Nate Hill started for the Millers and allowed three earned runs on six hits before he, too, was pulled after the rain delay for Seitz, who got the win for Moose Jaw. Reece Helland picked up the save after getting the last three outs in the ninth.

The 57's (13-9) lose their second-straight game to Moose Jaw and are now three games back of the East Division-leading Millers (16-6), who are now on a seven-game winning streak.

Swift Current has the day off Sunday before heading on the road to Medicine Hat on Monday, back to Moose Jaw on Tuesday and then Regina on Wednesday. They return home to face Weyburn on Thursday.
