The Southeast U18 AAA Twins dropped two of the three games they played during the past week.

The Twins (10-3) split games last week with the Regina Wolfpack in a clash of two of the top teams in the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League, and then lost to the Parkland Expos.

The Wolfpack blanked the Twins 1-0 June 7 in Regina. The Wolfpack scored the lone run in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Cooper Walbaum and Peyton Balog had two hits each for the Twins.

Sutter Balog went the distance for the Twins, giving up four hits and striking out eight in six innings. The run he surrendered was unearned.

The Twins responded with a 5-3 victory over the Wolfpack Wednesday night at Lynn Prime Park in Estevan. The Twins trailed 2-0 entering the bottom of the fifth, but then scored twice to tie the game and notched the go-ahead runs in the sixth.

Mitch Himmelspach had a hit and three runs batted in for the Twins.

Mason Fichter went 6 2/3 innings to get the win, surrendering two hits and striking out six. Nathan Yunick came on to get the save.

The Twins scored in the fourth inning against the Expos, giving them a 1-0 advantage. But the Expos notched two in the fifth and three in the sixth for a 5-1 decision on June 12

Callum Hollinger had the Twins’ lone RBI, while Conner Kerr scored the only run.

Himmelspach gave up five runs, three earned, in 5 1/3 innings.

The Twins will host the Expos at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. on June 15 at Lynn Prime Park. Then they will visit the Regina White Sox for two on June 17.


The Estevan U18 AA Brewers, meanwhile, went 1-2 during their weekend games.

The first contest was an 8-5 loss to the Regina Buffalos. The Brewers had a 5-4 lead through five innings, but gave up one in the sixth and three in the seventh. Matty Fornwald had two hits and brought in a run, while Jacob Mayer had a run and two hits.

Tanyan Strudwick nearly had a complete game on the mound, as he went 6 2/3 innings.

The Brewers then split a doubleheader with the White Butte Broncos on Sunday, winning 7-0 but losing 11-9.

Jacob Mayer turned in a magnificent pitching performance for the Brewers in the first game, giving up just one hit in a complete game seven-inning performance. He also struck out four.

Strudwick led the offence with two hits, three RBIs and a run scored.

In the second game, the Twins led 7-1 through three and 8-4 after four, but then surrendered six in the fifth. Strudwick had two hits, two RBIs and two runs, while Ty Hoste managed two hits, an RBI and a run.

Koen Turner started and gave up four runs, three of them earned, in 3 1/3 innings.

The Brewers (4-8) won’t play in league again until they host the Weyburn Beavers on June 22, starting at 7 p.m. at Lynn Prime Park.
