18U AAA 57’s win third straight

The Swift Current 57’s won their third straight game with a 3-2 victory over the host Moose Jaw Canucks in the Saskatchewan Premier 18U AAA Baseball League on Friday.

Wyatt Harkes earned the complete game victory as he held the Canucks to four hits, one walk, two runs, only one that was earned, while striking out eight over seven innings.

The 57’s were held to five hits, but Riley Bowers singled home Ethan Murdoch in the top of the seventh inning for the winning run. The 57’s had taken the lead in the first inning when Ben Patenaude singled home Murdoch and Dawson Schultz.

Cash Arntsen had two hits, including a double, out of the leadoff spot, while Harkes got on base with a pair of walks.

The 57’s improved to 3-2, while the Canucks fell to 4-5-0.

The 57’s will continue a five-game weekend on Saturday when they visit the Regina White Sox (2-5-0) for a pair of games. The 57’s will host the White Butte Broncos (1-4-0) on Sunday at 1 p.m. at Mitchell Field.
