57’s busy on the diamond
The Swift Current Midget 57’s continued to get strong pitching, but were unable to score in their first Saskatchewan Premier Midget AAA Baseball League road game of the season.
Two pitchers combined to allow only four hits and one unearned run in a 1-0 loss to the host Regina Athletics Wednesday.
Logan Fritzke lowered his earned run average to 0.88 when he allowed two hits, one walk, and one unearned run, while striking out five over three innings in the loss. Brock Wall pitched three scoreless innings of relief, allowing two hits and one walk while striking out three.
Peyton Jerome held the 57’s to two hits and two walks over six innings in the win. The Athletics scored their only run in the third inning when a twoout error allowed a runner to reach second base and a single brought Jordan Liebel around to score.
The 57’s fell to 0-5, while the Athletics improved to 2-1.
The 57’s will be back at home on Wednesday to host the Regina White Sox at 7 p.m. at Mitchell Field.
Around the bases: the Swift Current AAA Mosquito 57’s got into the win column with two wins Saturday. They defeated the visiting Regina Buffalos 16-11, led by an inside the park home run from Aiden Robinson in the opening game. They followed up with a 10-6 win to improve to 2-3-1 on the season.
