Friday night Regina and Weyburn face off

06/22/2013 11:19 PM -

 Friday night’s game between the Regina Red Sox and the Weyburn Beavers was the second time that these two teams have met this week; fourth time this season.

 

As usual, the Beavers jumped out to an early lead with one run scored in the top of the first, and one in the top of the second to put the Red Sox in an early 2-0 hole. Chase Benfield and Austin Drummonds, two Sylacauga, Alabama boys, scored for Red Sox in the third and fourth innings though, and the home team led the game 3-2 at the end of four.

 

The Red Sox padded their lead in the bottom of the seventh when Hector Rivera hit a RBI single to centre field to score Benfield. Ryan Brezinski, Robert Price, and Jacob Leyba each pitched one of the final three innings, but it was Leyba that closed out the game, which gave the Red Sox the 4-2 win.

 

Allan Sanchez was the winning pitcher for the home team, and Leyba was credited with the save. Chris Housley was the losing pitcher for the Beavers.

 

The game lasted just over two hours making it one of the shortest games that the Red Sox have played so far this season.

 

The Red Sox are in Melville on Saturday to take on the Millionaires in a double header. They return to Currie Field on Sunday to face the Moose Jaw Miller Express at 2:05 p.m.
