The 57’s defeated the host Moose Jaw Canucks 17-6 in the opener. The Canucks replied with a 13-12 walk-off win in seven innings. Swift Current trailed by six runs but came back to tie the game 12-12 in the top of the seventh when Mason Fauser hit a three-run home run, his third home run of the evening.

The 57’s moved to 6-4 in the Regina Baseball League, while the Canucks improved to 1-2-1.
