Indians catcher Kirk Haviland was just inches late on the tag during a four-run fifth inning.

One bad inning cost the Swift Current Indians the game against the league leading Regina Red Sox on Thursday.

The visiting Sox scored four runs on three singles, two fielders choices, and an error in the top of the fifth inning to defeat the Indians 4-1.

Kirk Haviland scored the lone Indians run courtesy of a solo home run that bounced off the top of the wall in left-centre in the second inning, his sixth of the season.

Mat Tew suffered the loss, allowing five hits and four runs over 4 1/3 innings with two strikeouts to drop to 2-1.

Nick Cervantes moved to 6-0 for the Red Sox, allowing only five hits over nine innings with two walks and five strikeouts.

The Indians dropped to 21-14 in the loss, while the Sox improved to 28-9 as both teams continue to lead their respective divisions.

The Indians will be in Lethbridge on Friday to face the Bulls (18-24) as they embark on a three-game road trip.
