Sox, Indians end in 4 - 4 tie
Southshore Men’s League baseball action started last week with a rare tie. With darkness decending, the Wabasca Indians and Boss Pressure Red Sox were deadlocked 4 - 4, so they decided to call it a night. It was the first tie in the league this season.
The Sox had to come back in the bottom of the seventh inning to earn the single point. Down 4 - 3, they managed to push a run across and that was all she wrote.
Morin Yellowknee pitched for the Indians and Jared (last name not known) pitched for the Sox, with Garth Lacombe finishing it off.
Wednesday’s game saw the Cardinals and the Sox in a higher-scoring affair. The lead changed hands a few times and ended up in favour of the Cardinals, 8 - 6.
“We were winning,” says Trevor Vance of the Sox. “I hit a homer in the fifth and were up.”
But the Cardinals came back and took it in the late innings, giving Bradley Sinclair the win.
“Errors were a key in the game,” says Vance.
Keith Sinclair started the game for the Sox, but Curtis Poitras took the loss.
“He was pretty wild,” says Vance.
On Thursday night the Wabasca Indians were back in town to face the first-place Widewater Eagles. That game did not happen and may or may not be rescheuled.
In other baseball news, Slave Lake is hosting the Tier IV Bantam provincial championships this weekend at the Sinclair fields. The action starts on Friday at 3:00 p.m. The Slave Lake Bantam Heat will battle with four other teams - one from Strathmore, two from Sherwood Park and one from Westlock.
