The Swift Current 57's had a boisterous weekend, that ended in less than stellar fashion.
Starting back on Friday night, they beat the Regina Red Sox 4-1 to bring their five-game series to an even two games a piece.
Swift Current would earn those four runs early in the game, with one in the first inning and three oddly enough in the third. From there on out they would play an excellent defensive game, only allowing a single batter around the bases in the ninth inning.
Leading up the score sheet for the 57's was Tejean Smith, who managed to score a pair of runs. Also making it back to home plate for the home team was Hayden Cooper and Cory Bonstrom.
Saturday, the 57's managed to improve their previous night's performance by downing the Red Sox again 5-1, in a game that stretched nearly three and a half hours.
The 57's would flip the script for this one, waiting until the later half of the game to bring in the big guns. They scored their runs with two in the sixth inning, one in the seventh, and the last two in the eighth. Regina would also score their only run in the eighth.
The star of the batter-box for Swift Current was Thomas Collins, who plated a pair of runs. And same as the night before, Tejean Smith managed to score, with a single run. So did Hayden Cooper and Cory Bonstrom.
It would be Sunday that the bats would finally cool off for Swift Current. Mitchell Field welcomed the Medicine Hat Mavericks for the night and would see them flatten the 57's 6-1.
It wasn't a bad start for the 57's as they took the lead initially in the second inning with the first run of the game from Thomas Collins. After that though, it was a field day for Medicine Hat, as they took in scoring runs in the fourth (1), fifth (2), seventh (2), and ninth (1) innings.
Tonight, the 57's will try to reignite the fire in their timber, playing away in Weyburn against the Beavers.
The next home game for Swift Current will be this Wednesday when they will host the Brooks Bombers.
