Swift Current’s Logan Fritzke will play for gold at the 2017 Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg.

Fritzke and Team Saskatchewan U18 men’s baseball team defeated Team Ontario 7-0 in the semi-final on Thursday evening. Fritzke played second base and hit second in the order, finishing two-for-three with two singles and a walk in the victory.

Saskatoon’s Connor Sparks got the win for Team Saskatchewan with five innings of four-hit shutout ball. Saskatoon’s Ryan Olchoway got the final six outs without allowing a hit.
