 It was win and you’re in Playoff scenario for the Swift Current Indians at Currie Field Saturday night. With the Indians 4-3 victory in Regina, they will head to the playoffs. It was an entertaining game that saw the Red Sox jump out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning. Swift Current battled back with two runs in the top of the second.

The score remained 3-2 Regina until Swift Current got a clutch hit in the fifth inning from Tyler Enns that drove in two runs and put the visitors in the lead for good.

The 612 baseball fans, who took in the final Red Sox regular season game, saw Andrew MacMahon make his fifth start of the season. MacMahon went three innings facing 16 Swift Current batters. He gave up two runs on five hits before giving way to Kal Daniels.

Tyler Vavra came in to pitch in the fifth inning and gave up the lead as Swift Current tagged him for two runs on two hits and a walk.

Regina did have a few offensive highlights in what can be called a tune up for the playoffs. Garrett Hall was two for two with a pair of RBIs, while Tanner Stokey was two for three at the dish.

The playoffs begin Sunday night as Regina hosts the Yorkton Cardinals in game one of the best of five first round series. Game two goes Monday night at Currie Field.

Regina Thunder Through Two Days of Camp

The Regina Thunder are through two days of training camp after two more sessions on Saturday. The team hit the field at 9 and then 11:30 in the morning for the first two-a-days workout.

There are a total of 88 players at camp, here is the position breakdown.

Quarterbacks: Marwick, Beuttner, Tuba, Grain and Carrier.
-Markwick is the guy this year but Beuttner will push him and will get some playing time late in games if the Thunder are ahead.

Runningbacks: Klassen, St. Pierre, Bjorge, Dong, Grasdal, Hautz, Kuxhaus, Dyck, Griffin, Eckert and Ruckaber.
-Klassen looks primed for a great season in his second year with the club. St. Pierre was with the Winnipeg Rifles last season but got his release from the team and he will get some carries this year I imagine. A good one two punch from what I have seen so far.

Receivers: Bews, Bresciani, Brown, Calcutt, Desautels, Drozda, Fortin, Nichols, Ocaya, Paul, Peterson Renouf, Taylor, Bossence, Wingenbach and Thompson.
- Bews is the leader of the pack in the receiving corps. Into his second year on the practice squad with the Riders and he will have a big year. Add returnees Bresciani, Desautels, Ocaya and the likes plus the young guys in Brown, Calcutt and Taylor and there is a ton of talent and competition.

Offensive Line: Deschene, Ferland, Halbegewachs, Knight, Lipp, Mitchell, Moroz, Myers, Teskey, Baber, Braden, Rossignol, Wallace, Woit and Elliot.
-This is a deep group led by Matt Halbegewachs who was with the Riders this year, and Kyle Deschene. They are big, strong and athletic. One of the biggest strengths of the team.

Defensive Line: Bell, Criddle, Gibb, Giovannetti, Hein, Lubiak, Nykiforuk, Warner, Williams, Cyr, Easton, Robertson, Turnbull, Bright and Ritco.
- Lots of returning guys who will look to build and get better one season later. Giovannetti had a strong season last year as did Ryan Warner. Ben Criddle too. Bell comes to the Thunder from the Rams if I am not mistaken and definitely adds to the group.

Linebackers: Barrett, Moffatt, Pelletier, Seck, Siebrecht, Smith, Toth, Wilchynski, Douglas, Keating, Richardson and Shepherd.
- Lots of competition here in camp as five guys graduated at the linebacker position after last year. Paul Toth is a third year guy who will likely be among the starters.

Defensive Backs: Dick, Erbach, Filyk, Goudy, Hall, Holobroff-Avram, Lizenberger, Lowes, Mayer, McAlpine, Menegbo, Vien, Ward, Bells, Ellis, Latoski and Martin.
- Four of the starting five return from last year. The only departure was safety Chris Tunnicliffe and Marcus Hall has been in his spot to start camp. Erbach and McAlpine will lead this group but there is a lot of young talent pushing the returning starters.

Kicker: Findura.
- Receiver Kris Calcutt has also been auditioning in the kicking game doing field goals. Findura is mainly a punter but the coaching staff would like to see one of those guys do both so not to take up a travelling spot.

I caught up with Head Coach Scott MacAulay, quarterbacks Jaeden Marwick and Sawyer Beuttner as well as running back Colton Klassen after Saturdays sessions. Camp continues Sunday at 9AM and 11:30AM.

The Regina Red Sox extended their winning streak to three games with a 7-1 victory over the Yorkton Cardinals.

Regina broke the game open with four runs in the fourth inning and finished with seven runs on 10 hits while Yorkton had a run on four hits.

Red Sox starter Parks Smithey was brilliant on the mound. He shutout the Cards, giving up only three hits and three walks while striking out three over seven innings of solid work.

It was a total team effort on offence as 11 of the 12 Red Sox hitters reached base during the game. Local product, Jordan Schulz was one of the team hitting stars going one for three with a walk and two runs scored.

Regina now 23-24, will round out the regular season Saturday night at Currie Field against Swift Current.

Regina Thunder Open 2015 Training Camp

The Regina Thunder took to the field Friday night for the first session of their 2015 Training Camp. There are a total of 91 players in attendance for the camp which continues Saturday and Sunday at Scotty Livingston Field.

It was an impressive first practice and you can see this team has a lot of talent this year on both sides of the ball. The coaching staff prepared so well over the off-season and it showed on the field Friday and the players put the work in as well. I will refrain from giving a lot individual assessments as there was not a numerical roster available on day 1 but there were some guys who stood out. Jaeden Marwick and Sawyer Beuttner looked really good at quarterback. The offensive line is massive, the defensive backs are a bunch of returnees and will be really good as well. I will have more from Saturday but for today here are some pictures from the session and then interviews with Defensive Coordinator Brent Glen and defensive back Dustin Erbach.

Camp continues Saturday morning at 9 AM.

Final Results from Amateur Men's Championship in Estevan

The 104th Amateur Men's Championship, hosted at the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club in Estevan, is now in the books. After extreme weather delayed the second round of play on Tuesday, the Championship was decided today with a 36 hole marathon.
Weather was one of the main stories of the week, with high winds blowing every round of the week. Today was the calmest day of the week, and Charles Boyechko of Winnipeg will be taking the Championship trophy back home across the border to Manitoba this year.

Boyechko (right) shot rounds of 76, 69, 70 and 75 this week to barely edge out Danny Klughart of Prince Albert by a single stroke. Klughart, playing in the second last group of the day, was steady all week in earning top Saskatchewan golfer with rounds of 74, 74, 71 and 72. Rounding out the top 3 was Mitchell Matichuk of Melville, firing great rounds of 73, 74, 71 and 75.

Devon Schade, another Manitoba product, finished in fourth place with scores of 77, 71, 73 and 73. Schade recently captured the 2015 Manitoba Amateur Championship.

The TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club once again proved to be a very worthy host golf course. Players all week couldn't say enough good things about the conditions of the golf course. After heavy winds knocked down some trees Tuesday night, the Woodlawn maintenance team worked hard to ensure the course would be playable for the rest of the week.

The 2015 Amateur Men's Team that will represent Saskatchewan in Toronto August 10th to the 13th will be;
  • Danny Klughart - Cooke Municipal GC, Prince Albert
  • Mitchell Matichuk - Melville Regional GC, Melville
  • Tyler Wright - Wascana GC, Regina
Special thanks go out to TS&M Woodlawn General Manager Kyle Mulligan and Head Professional Amanda Minchin for the outstanding hospitality and support all week long.

In what could be a Saskatchewan Division playoff preview, 792 baseball fans, watched the Regina Red Sox beat the Yorkton Cardinals 3-2 in 11 innings.

Tanner Stokey, the senior from Arizona Christian University scored the winning run on an error by the Yorkton catcher in the bottom of the 11th inning.  Mike Thill was credited with the win after pitching three solid innings in relief. Thill held Yorkton to one hit and struck out four Card batters.

With the victory, Regina clinches second place in the division and now sports an overall record of 22-24.
