Monday night’s matchup against the Weyburn Beavers was a tough loss for the Red Sox, but it was evident early on that the Beavers were hungry for their first win of the 2013 season.
The visitors jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning with runs scored by Spencer Mallonee and Michael Lukkason. In the bottom of the fifth, Travis Tessandori scored for the Red Sox to cut the Beavers’ lead in half, and Cody Maas tied the game up for the home team an inning later.
Both teams changed pitchers midway through the game. William Shell replaced Bronson Gillam for the Red Sox, and after going through three pitchers, the Beavers finally settled on big hitter Dalton Silva to close out the game for the visitors.
The game was tied 2-2 at the end of nine innings, but it only took the Beavers one extra inning to score the go ahead runs. The Red Sox ultimately couldn’t overcome the deficit and fell to the Beavers 5-2.
Maas and Chris Untereiner went 2-for-4 at the plate for the home team, while Lukkason had two RBIs for the Beavers.
The Red Sox will play back-to-back home games on Thursday and Friday against the Medicine Hat Mavericks. Game start at 7:05 p.m.
