The Regina Red Sox are still alive.
In front of a raucous crowd of 540 at Currie Field, the Sox clubbed their way to a 10-4 victory over the Weyburn Beavers in game four of the Western Major Baseball League East Division Final.
The Sox’ offence was powered by two big home runs, a three run jack from Jahshua Jones and two run shot from Matt DeNeau. Kyle Wilson got the W for the Red Sox, as he went seven strong innings, allowing six hits while punching out eight.

Manager Mitch MacDonald said his team was seeing the ball well.
“Guys used to hitting here know what to expect,” he said. “And comfortability lends itself well to good at bats.”
But despite the big win, MacDonald said his team needs to keep focused.
“The night before doesn’t mean anything,” he said. “Weyburn’s gonna come out ready to go and we got to match their intensity and their want.”
