The Swift Cur­rent Ban­tam 57’s emerged from a gru­el­ing a six-game Regina Ban­tam AAA Base­ball League home stand with four wins over the week­end.

They played un­der the lights at Mitchell Field on Fri­day and de­feated the White Butte Bron­cos 3-0 and 13-2.

They hosted the Wey­burn Beavers on Satur­day and lost 11-3 and 22-10 as ev­ery player on the ros­ter had pitched by the end of the day. The 57’s re­bounded Sun­day to earn 3-1 and 13-1 wins over the vis­it­ing Regina Buf­fa­los to im­prove to 10-5 in league play this sea­son.

The Ban­tam 57’s are back at home this week­end for games against the Buf­fa­los and the Pac­ers.

The Mos­quito 57’s won once dur­ing a four-game Regina Mos­quito AAA Base­ball League home stand.

They hosted the Regina White Sox on Satur­day and lost the opener 5-2. They re­bounded with an 11-1 win in game two when Mak­str Mcin­tyre earned the com­plete game vic­tory.

The 57’s also hosted White Butte on Sun­day, los­ing 11-5 and 10-7.

The 57’s were held to four hits as they dropped to 0-6-1 on the sea­son. Lo­gan Fritzke led the team with a pair of sin­gles to im­prove his av­er­age to .429 on the cam­paign. He scored the only run in the sev­enth in­ning af­ter sin­gling, ad­vanc­ing on a wild pitch, and then scor­ing on an er­ror.

The 57’s were on the road Satur­day to visit the Saska­toon Gi­ants (4-5) for two league games. They lost the opener 12-1 when they were held to three hits. Brock Wall scored the only run when he sin­gled, stole sec­ond, and came around to score on an Ethan War­ketin sin­gle and an er­ror. Nathan Mcinnis also sin­gled twice for the vis­i­tors.

Their of­fen­sive woes con­tin­ued in a 6-1 loss when they were lim­ited to four base hits. Mcinnis scored the only run when he walked and took ad­van­tage of er­rors and a Warkentin fielder’s choice.

The 57’s will visit the South­east Twins for two games on Satur­day and the Saska­toon Cubs on Sun­day.
