The Regina Red Sox could have seen a magical run to the finals come to a tragic end Tuesday.
But, that wasn’t something they had in mind.
Facing elimination on home field, the Sox bats broke out big time, as they hammered Medicine Hat 12-1 in front of a raucous crowd at Currie Field. The Red Sox were all over the Mavericks pitching, smacking 16 hits compared to the seven from Medicine Hat.
Manager Mitch MacDonald said his Sox squad played clean baseball.
“We were able to put good swings on the bat with guys in scoring position,” he said. “We were able to sustain some rallies that we weren’t able to in games one and two.”
Kyle Wilson found his groove, throwing a complete game, allowing just one earned run on seven hits, walking one and punching out four.
Game four goes Wednesday night at 7 at Currie Field, the Sox still need to win that game to stay alive in the chase for the WMBL title.
