The Swift Current 57’s were no match for the Western Major Baseball League leading Weyburn Beavers on Thursday.

The 57’s made four errors in an 8-2 loss as Weyburn improved to 14-1 on the season.

The Beavers put the game out of reach early with a home run in the first inning, followed by a four-run second inning.

Jerad Dokey hit a home run for the 57’s in the fifth inning as they fell to 8-10 on the season.

Chase Thometz earned the win after holding the 57’s to two hits, two walks, and one run, while striking out five over six innings.

Will Baker tried to tag a Weyburn base runner on Thursday.

The 57’s will have a rare two-day break before visiting the Brooks Bombers on Sunday.
