The Weyburn Iron Pigs improved to 2-0 on the season Thursday night, as they doubled up the visiting Regina Ghosts 4-2 at Tom Laing Park.
The Pigs would get on the board in the bottom of the fifth when Kelton Hoium was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, earning the RBI the hard way. This would bring in Mike Onstad to make it 1-0. Then, two batters later, Eric Evans singles to right field, allowing Garrett Walbaum to cross the plate.
The next inning, Weyburn doubled the lead when Luke Niemegeers hit a single to second base that allowed two runs to come in with Adam Ziegler and Mike Onstad scoring, making it a 4-0 game.
In the sixth inning, Regina would finally get on the board, when Niemegeers, pitching in relief, walked two batters with the bases loaded, making it 4-2.
Eric Evans earned the win on the mound for the Beavers, He went five innings, striking out three and allowing five hits and one walk. In two innings of relief work, Niemegeers struck out four, and walked six, allowing two earned runs.
The Iron Pigs will be back in action next Friday, when they host the Regina Dodgers at Tom Laing Park.
