Hot at home
The Swift Current Indians continue to be hot at home and cool on the road
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.

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.
