It was a high-scoring weekend at Tom Laing Park. Over the course of two games, the Weyburn Beavers and the Brooks Bombers combined for 51 runs, 60 hits, six home runs, and 20 different pitchers. By the time the dust settled, the Bombers would end up outscoring Weyburn in both games, winning Saturday by a final of 12-7, and then Sunday afternoon by a final of 20-12.  

In the game Saturday, the Beavers had home runs from Ian Heck, Halen Otte, and Carter Schellsmidt. Otte and Schellsmidt would finish the game with two RBI each, with Heck driving in one run, and River Smith also driving in a run. Ryan Muizelaar would collect a pair of hits in the game, as did Jacob Carlson. 

On the mound, Ryan Meyer would end up giving nine runs, eight earned, through six innings of work. He also struck out four batters. Mathieu Rocheleau would allow three runs while striking out two in relief, with Owen McConnell and Logan Wortman pitching an inning each in relief, with no runs allowed, while striking out two and three respectively.  

Sunday afternoon, the two teams took to the field for a matinee matchup. The Bombers would jump out to an early lead and did everything they could to stay ahead of the Beavers on the scoreboard.  

Otte would add three more RBI to his total for the season, Nick Teng also drove in three runs. Ian Heck added a pair of RBI and Ryan Webster collected one as well. Heck also finished the day with a pair of doubles, giving him seven on the season. Otte, Niko Kekatos, and Teng also hit doubles in the game.  

Kekatos added a single to his total for the game and has now collected a hit in eleven consecutive games, putting his batting average up to .404 on the season. In the stretch since his hitting streak began, Kekatos has posted a batting average of .476, slugging percentage of .642, and an on-base percentage of .522.  

“Both teams came out swinging for sure,” said Beavers head coach Cam Williams after the game Sunday. “They came out swinging, and I think we just didn’t do a great job of adjusting to their aggressive approach.” 

The Beavers will now prepare for their Alberta road swing. They open the seven-game stretch in Edmonton on Wednesday night, followed by games in Sylvan Lake, Fort McMurray, and Medicine Hat. The Beavers will be back home on July 3rd when they host the Moose Jaw Miller Express.
