The Swift Cur­rent In­di­ans will need to find ways to win on the road as they face three road games over the next four days in the West­ern Ma­jor Base­ball League.

The In­di­ans opened the sea­son with a 0-5 record on the road fol­low­ing week­end losses in Oko­toks and Regina.

The Tribe won six of their first seven home games, in­clud­ing six straight wins af­ter a sea­son open­ing loss to the Oko­toks Dawgs on June 1.

Last week the Tribe strung to­gether home wins over Leth­bridge, Saska­toon, and a pair of vic­to­ries over York­ton to help stay above the .500 mark.

The In­di­ans will play five games over the next six days be­gin­ning tonight with a make up game against the Oko­toks Dawgs be­gin­ning at 7: 05 p.m. at Mitchell Field.

Fri­day, they will be in Moose Jaw, fol­lowed by a trip Medicine Hat on Satur­day. Mon­day, the In­di­ans will play their third straight road game in Wey­burn, be­fore re­turn­ing Tues­day to host the Leth­bridge Bulls.
