Will Thorp’s ninth-inning homerun lifted the Swift Current Indians to a 2-1 win over the visiting Melville Millionaires Wednesday.

The Indians’ catcher hit a walk-off homerun to break a 1-1 tie with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning. The win improved the Indians to 9-2 at home this season and 14-5 overall as they lead the Central Division by 4.5 games.

Local pitcher Justin Kehler picked up the win with two innings of one-hit ball in relief. Wymark’s Reiley Grose returned from injury and pitched a scoreless seventh inning as well.

The Tribe will be on the road for games Thursday and Friday in Yorkton.
