The Swift Current Indians earned a valuable win Sunday, upending the visiting Medicine Hat Mavericks 6-4.
The Indians erased a pair of deficits, including a 3-0 hole in the first inning when they quickly responded with three runs of their own in the bottom half of the frame. Medicine Hat jumped ahead 4-3 just as quickly but the Indians scored the final three runs to clinch their second straight win.
Juan Pizarro picked up the win as he recovered from a shaky start. He allowed seven hits, one walk, and four runs over 6.2 innings while striking out six.
The Indians improved to 25-18 and stretched their lead to 1.5 games over Moose Jaw with two games remaining in the regular season against one another. Medicine Hat dropped to 24-20 and remain second in the West Division.
The Indians will host Yorkton on Monday with three games remaining in the regular season.
