The Swift Current Indians are heading to the WMBL championship series after sweeping the Regina Red Sox

2014 Swift Current Indians

The Swift Current Indians are heading back to the Western Major Baseball League championship series after more late heroics from Hunter Owen.

The Indians' shortstop hit a walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth inning to score Eric Sams from first base for a 4-3 win to complete the three game sweep of the Regina Red Sox.

Owen now has seven runs batted in during the playoffs after hitting a three-run home run in game to score the eventual winning run as well.

Fernando Pena made the start and gave his team a chance to win with seven strong innings, allowing five hits, three walks, and two runs while striking out eight. Robbie DeVries earned the win with a scoreless ninth inning.

The Indians will now face either the Medicine Hat Mavericks or the Okotoks Dawgs in the championship series. Okotoks won game three 21-5 on Saturday to fend off elimination and will now host game four on Sunday.
