YORKTON - The Estevan Brewers could not keep pace with the Parkland Expos in action Sunday.

A grand slam by Brett Smith on a 2-1 count in the first inning gave the visiting Expos a 4-0 lead and they rolled from there.

In the sixth inning the Expos added four more, on their way to an 11-2 win.

Brandon Splichen was the winning pitcher, starting and going five and two-thirds inning, allowing only one hit and one run while striking out 10 and only walking one.

Matthew Datema finished the game for the Expos.

The Expos then took on the Assiniboia Aces, also on Sunday, in a game which proved to be a close one.

However, a big third inning by the Expos plating seven runs proved the difference in a 9-8 win.

Jeff Stewart helped the Parkland cause with a home run in the sixth.

Overall, the Expos had nine hits, with Stewart leading the way with three hits in four at-bats.

Matthew Spilchuk was the winning pitcher, going four innings, allowing four hits and four runs, while striking out three.

Logan Wolkowski threw three innings in relief.

The Expos host Moose Jaw at 11 a.m. Saturday at Jubilee Park, then play Estevan at 5 p.m.. Sunday White Butte visits at 1 p.m..
