Swift Current Indians

The Swift Current Indians' season came to an end Saturday in a 6-3 loss as they lost the Western Major Baseball League championships series 3-1 to the Medicine Hat Mavericks.

The host Mavericks scored twice in the first inning, once in the third, and three in the fifth inning to take a 6-0 lead before Swift Current responded with three runs in the seventh.

Fernando Pena suffered the loss, allowing two hits, one walk, and two runs without getting an out to start the game. Zach Manley, usually the team's closer, pitched the final eight innings, allowing five hits, three walks, and four runs, two that were unearned.

The Indians scored their runs when Josh Johnson tripled in Kevin Bettencourt, Matt Spillman singled in Johnson, and Spillman scored on a Eros Modena single.

The Indians had won another Central Division pennant this season with a 28-18 record and finished third in the WMBL with a .609 winning percentage before eliminating the Weyburn Beavers in four games and then sweeping the Regina Red Sox out of the playoffs.
