The Weyburn Beavers played the second leg of their Alberta road swing Wednesday night, after taking the nearly five-hour trip from Sherwood Park, Alberta, where they played the Edmonton Prospects, to Fort McMurray, where they played the Giants.  

The Beavers would be able to get the runners on base, collecting 11 hits in the game, but could only bring two of those runners home, leaving nine on base, as the Giants edged past Weyburn 3-2.  

While he was tagged with the loss, starting pitcher Ian Heck became the first Beavers pitcher since Josh Wintroub in the 2022 season to throw a complete game. He would finish giving up three runs on eight hits while striking out one. He was efficient on the mound as well, throwing 101 pitches, 63 of which were strikes.  

At the plate, nearly every player collected a hit for the Beavers, with Ryan Muizelaar hitting a double. Heck, Niko Kekatos, and Jacob Carlson all had two singles in the loss. Heck also drove in one run, as did Easton Mould.  

The Beavers will now look to bounce back with another game on Thursday night against the Giants before they head back to Sherwood Park for another game against the Prospects on Friday. The Beavers then travel to Sylvan Lake for games on Saturday and Sunday before wrapping up their road trip on Monday in Medicine Hat.
