The Swift Current Midget Indians swept a double header against the visiting Southeast Twins on Wednesday to move above .500 in the Saskatchewan Premier Baseball League.

The Indians opened the evening with a dramatic come-from-behind 8-7 win and then cruised to a 20-1 win in only five innings to improve to 11-10 on the season.

Justin Kehler singled in George Hudec in the bottom of the seventh to end the opener. Bantam call-up BJ Moen earned the win with a scoreless seventh inning. The Tribe trailed 7-4 after five innings before scoring three in the sixth to tie things up and set the stage for Kehler's walk-off hit.

The Indians combined 17 hits with four walks and six Twins' errors to score 20 runs in only four innings at the plate in the second game. Incredibly, all nine Indians hitters had at least one base-hit, one run scored, and one run batted in during the offensive outburst.

Zac Mackay led the offense with four hits, three runs, and three RBI's. Left-fielder Curtis Akre added three RBI's and scored four runs, George Hudec had two hits, scored two runs, and knocked in a pair, and Josh Siemens also scored three runs.

Tyrell Olfert earned the win, allowing only two hits and one run over five innings, while walking four and striking out seven.

Next up for the Midget Indians will be a trip to Saskatoon to visit the league leading Saskatoon Giants (19-4) on Friday.
